Can I purchase travel pass if I already have a swiss pass

New Member


I have arrived in Switzerland in September and I have been using my swiss pass ever since. So, currently, it has been about 3 months since I have arrived in Switzerland. And I plan on travelling in Switzerland in January. However, I wonder if I could still purchase and use the Swiss Travel Pass. 

On the website, it states that the residence of Switzerland cannot use Swiss travel pass; yet, I'm uncertain whether my B permit falls into that category. 
I have also heard that if I have stayed in Switzerland for less than 5 months, then I could use the swiss travel pass. However, I would like to validate this information and see if it could work in my case.
