Probability of obtaining a C permit

Full name of indicator: probability of obtaining a settlement permit

Definitions

In line with the Federal Act on Foreign Nationals and Integration, the settlement permit may in principle be granted at the earliest following a legal stay of at least 5 years (see article 34 on the Federal Act on Foreign Nationals for further details). For the development of this indicator, however, it is those who have held a permit B for at least 4 years on 31.12 in the year prior to the year of observation that are selected because the duration of stay may reach 5 years during the year of observation.

The calculation is done in the following way: the share of those newly obtaining a C permit from year X who have held a B permit for at least 4 years on 31.12 of the previous year among the number of persons who have held a B permit for at least 4 years on 31.12 of the previous year.
