Residence in Switzerland
Switzerland is undoubtedly one of the most attractive countries in the world to live in. It also offers an excellent business environment. An ideal combination of political and economic stability, a clean and safe environment and relatively low tax rates make it the ultimate choice for business and residence. Investors and entrepreneurs as well as persons of independent means would normally have no problem obtaining a residence permit.
There are different types of residence categories in Switzerland and a distinction is made between European Union and European Free Trade Association citizens (EU/EFTA citizens) and other foreign persons (non-EU/EFTA citizens).
Due to the Agreement on the free movement of persons, concluded between Switzerland and the EU member states, it has become easy for EU/EFTA citizens to obtain residence status in Switzerland. The key conditions are to have either employment in Switzerland, or to be a person of independent financial means.
Also non-EU/EFTA citizens may obtain a residence permit as gainfully employed Persons, as retirees with pre-existing close ties to Switzerland, or as financially independent persons who are not gainfully occupied in Switzerland and pay annual taxes. For non-EU nationals, a Swiss residence permit gives in any event visa-free access to all Schengen States, if their citizenship of origin does not already provide this privilege.
