Working and living in Switzerland – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Switzerland requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Swiss expat life. Living abroad in Switzerland raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Switzerland?ʺ, ʺIs the expat life in Zurich easy to manage for international people with disabilities?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Zurich should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Swiss municipality in Geneva?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Switzerland is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Switzerland aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Switzerland. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from restaurants and nightlife, to food & shopping or embassies and consulates, up to international schools. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺHow does the Swiss health-care system work?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
