Event review: Work permits – what I need to know as a company

How does the permit procedure look like – from applying to receiving a permit? What options do you have as a company and what are the differences in the permit procedure between EU/EFTA and Non-EU/EFTA member states?

The Economic Development Unit had the pleasure of putting together an informational event about work permits in August for companies based in Basel-Stadt. Marco Brianza, Team Leader, Work Permits and Oliver Meury, Head Naturalization & Permits at the Office for Migration in Basel were commenting on specific real-world issues and spoke about the fine distinctions in the Swiss permit system.

Did you know for example that in the year 2017 the total number of available quotas in Switzerland for Non-EU/EFTA nationals to obtain a work and resident permit B was 3'500? Or that most Non-EU/EFTA quotas since 2008 were given to Indian nationals?
