The third-quarter quotas for L- and B-Permits for EU nationals on assignment lasting more than four months have been exhausted. Employers who wish to send EU nationals on an assignment to Switzerland will need to wait until October 1, 2017, when fourth-quarter quotas become available.

Background
Work permit quotas apply to first-time applicants and those converting an L-Permit into a B-Permit only. Applicants renewing their L- or B-Permits are not subject to quotas.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals
Employers should plan their foreign employees' assignments in advance to avoid rejections due to quota exhaustion. Employers assigning EU nationals to Switzerland should check with the canton where they will file their work permit application to determine whether it accepts applications before the next quota numbers are released.
