Biometric Permit B

Hi all, I've recently changed addresses and now I need to go and get a biometric one. I have an appointment but does anyone know how long they take to come? are they done while you wait? or are they then sent after in the post?  


I had the paper ones before but now I believe all permits will be Biometric credit card ones. 


Cheers

Hello, 


The process at OCPM takes about 30 minutes (plus the wait at the entrance). 


Then they will send you the permit by "Recommandée" after one-two weeks and you will have to go to the post office to pick it up.


Cheers,


Sergio

Brilliant, thanks for the reply. 


Meantime if I need to prove my address, I can get an attestation from the same place?

I don't think you can get such an attestation, but while you're waiting for your B Permit you can keep with you a recent electricity (SIG) bill or an Internet subscription bill mentioning your name and new address.  That's pretty much recognized everywhere as a proof of living at that new address.

Thanks for this - and I also changed address and got the request to submit for a biometric Permit B. But is it mandatory or can I just keep the old version? I was not clear if you have to submit for the biometric version? Thanks,.

Looks like there is no choice. As they won't be sending a paper version.

thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I don't have any other bills, only health insurance.
