Before you can upload your documents, you must enter your nationality in your profile. If you do not have Swiss citizenship, please also select the type of permit and the purpose of your stay in Switzerland. You will find this information on your work/residence permit.

For the photos/scans of your documents, the following requirements are important:

  • The photos must not be cut off.

  • The photos must not be blurred.

  • There must be no flash of light on the photos.

If you have Swiss citizenship, we only need a photo of the front of your identity card or a photo of your passport. Don’t worry if your identity documents have expired – it’s only important for us to see that you have Swiss citizenship.

If you have another nationality, we need a photo of your passport and a photo of all the pages of your work/residence permit. The documents must be valid and must not be expired.

Because Coople is your legal employer and is obliged to report to the Migration Office, we are unfortunately not able to accept all types of work permits. If a Coopler is hired for a job, we have to report this to the Migration Office as quickly as possible. However, since jobs can take place at short notice via the Coople Jobs App, we are not able to meet the Migration Office’s mandatory notification deadline.

Unfortunately, Coople cannot help you change your permit to one that we require.

As a staff leasing company, Coople (Schweiz) AG is obliged to comply with the Swiss regulations on foreign nationals and staff leasing. According to art. 21 of the Employment Services Act, we may only employ foreign nationals if they are permitted to work and are entitled to change jobs without registration.

At Coople, we accept the following types of work permits:

  • L permit – Short-term residents – purpose of stay “Entitled to gainful employment

  • L permit – Short-term residents – purpose of stay “Paid employment

  • B permit – Resident foreign nationals – purpose of stay “Entitled to gainful employment

  • B permit – Resident foreign nationals – purpose of stay “Family reunification with gainful employment

  • C permit - Settled foreign nationals

  • G permit - Cross-border commuters – purpose of stay “Employment by specific company

If your residence or settlement permit has expired, you must upload an official written confirmation letter from the Migration Office in addition to your expired permit.

For Coople to accept such a letter from the Migration Office as a temporary solution, the letter must at least mention

  • that the current permit and the purpose of stay stated in it are still valid.

  • until when this letter is valid (expiry date).

  • who has drawn up and signed the letter (first name and surname of the case worker).

  • a stamp of the Migration Office must be visible.
