Five year card

Question

Hello,

Soon my work permit is coming for renewal and this time I will be having my fifth work permit. Am I eligible now to get a five year card ? On what basis the authorities decide to issue five year card? Is it based on commune? Do I need to request this while submitting my work permit application?

Thanks for sharing your experience..

Me

varies from commune to commune and sometimes even person to person at the same commune.
I had one year cards for years and changed commune and got a 5 year straight away. A friend at the same original commune is still waiting, another got one year 2. We all had the same job etc.
