Requesting a non-EU permit, regularizazion – caution!
Are you a citizen from a country that is not a member of the European Union? Are you thinking of requesting a work or residency permit? Beware, as it can be very risky to request a work permit, even if you have your employer’s support. Procedures are long and complicated and (except for highly qualified jobs), the success rate is very low. Thanks to operation Papyrus, those who meet certain precise criteria can request a permit, but it is very important to seek advice BEFORE starting any procedure. Once you have started the procedure, it is impossible to go back. If your permit request is rejected, you can be deported from Switzerland.
Do not to take unnecessary risks , contact an immigration law specialist (at CCSI, CSP, Caritas, SIT, etc.) before starting a procedure to request a permit. These services are generally free in non-profit organizations: contact us!
