How long can a foreigner stay in Switzerland after losing a job?…r-losing-a-job

This seems totally wrong. EU B permit holders shouldn’t change any permit while looking for a job. The Local disappoints again.

The quote you posted refers to the minimum period, which will not apply in most cases. However in cases where it does apply, I’d say it is three months, not six, as the additional three are discretionary.

No need to change permit. As long as they get unemployment benefits (1 year) they can search a job with the B permit. And after the benefit period they can stay other six month!

They are talking about situations where a permit is canceled or not renewed which can happen.
