The Expat Switzerland Chapter welcomes you!

Grüezi, salut, buongiorno, bainvegni and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in Switzerland! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in Switzerland. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates Switzerland: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in Switzerland?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in Geneva?ʺ or ʺWhere in Zurich can I meet fellow expats and compatriots from my home country?” Just to name a few examples…

InterNations aim is to help you, as an expatriate, in becoming part of the Switzerland expat community and exploring the Swiss way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional rösti to celebrating the Schweizer Nationalfeiertag.

Next to Switzerland we host several more communities in Western Europe, e.g., our network of Expat Germany. Or you might be interested in our Expat Peru community which is also fairly active.

Enjoy the Switzerland Expats Living

With attractions ranging from the mountain ranges of the Jura Vaudois to the pleasant waterfront of Lake Lugano, Switzerland fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The sizable expat Switzerland community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Zurich and its political as well as economic opportunities, e.g. in the banking sector. Whether you move to and live in Switzerland for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
