Moving to Switzerland?
If you are considering moving to Switzerland, be aware that there may be some challenges that can complicate the process. This is due to Switzerland not being an official EU member state and therefore has quotas for how many foreigners are allowed to move to the country. Specifically, this means that you can stay in Switzerland for up to three months, after which you will be required to obtain a stay and work permit.
If you want to be prepared for the things that you have not necessarily thought of yourself, it is a good idea to ally yourself with an experienced supplier who can help smoothen the move. That way, you can feel safe and focus on the fun part of a move instead.
