Moving To Switzerland

You may need to apply for a visa or other permit if you want to visit, live, work or study in Switzerland. This essential guide will help you find out which Swiss permit you need depending on your nationality and situation, as different rules apply for European citizens than those who move to Switzerland from outside of Europe. Immigration issues in Switzerland have been tense following a majority referendum to cap immigration from European Union (EU) countries, against the EU's freedom of movement policy. While the EU has not yet agreed to the caps, recent reports suggest Swiss diplomats are exploring a 'safeguard clause' that would let Switzerland cap immigration from the EU but once certain levels are filled. Check the latest ruling at the time of your application.
