The government of Switzerland has extended until May 31 2019 the quotas on issuing category B long-stay permits to Bulgarian and Romanian citizens, the Foreign Ministry in Sofia said.
The decision was taken because Bulgarians and Romanians had overshot the quota of 996 for such permits.
A category B residence permit is valid for five years and may be issued to a person who has an employment contract of at least 12 months, or someone who does not have gainful employment but has sufficient financial resources. It also may be issued to a self-employed person, providing that they can prove they can make ends meet.
