Foreign graduates holding a Swiss university-level diploma can be issued a work permit provided the propspective position involves an activity of particular scientific or economic importance.
Attention : foreign graduates do not have the right to obtain automatically a work permit. A prior authorization is always necessary.
A formal approval by the SEM is also mandatory. Work permits issued to foreign graduates are subject to the general quotas of B and L work permits.
