Matthew James Removals in Spain have helped move lots of British expats living in Spain and the spanish themselves to move to Switzerland.  With the recent down turn in the Spanish economy the Swiss Economy  is still very stable in terms of employment and property, thus offering the British and spanish professionals a chance to earn money and get the lifestyle they once had in Spain.

Living in Switzerland

Switzerland is one of the richest countries in the world by per capita gross domestic product, and has the highest wealth per adult of any country in the world. Zurich and Geneva have respectively been ranked as the cities with the second and eighth highest quality of life in the world. It has the world’s nineteenth largest economy. The country is situated in western Europe, where it is bordered by Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east.

Switzerland’s most important economic sector is manufacturing. Manufacturing consists largely of the production of specialist chemicals, health and pharmaceutical goods, scientific and precision measuring instruments and musical instruments. Population growth from net immigration is quite high, foreign citizen population is 21.8% as of 2004, about the same as in Australia. Moving to Switzerland has become a popular choice among expats. Switzerland attracts refugees from poor countries and migrants from wealthy nations alike. The latter often move to Switzerland due to low taxes and a high standard of living. Many people who move to Switzerland from countries with a more centralized administration are surprised at the high degree of autonomy granted to each of the 26 cantons. Most Expats are, however, aware of the country’s three official languages, German, French, and Italian. Despite the mountainous territory, expats living in Switzerland will benefit from good national and international transport connections by road and rail. This might not be the case if you plan on living in a remote Alpine village, but Switzerland is a highly urbanized country. Up to 75% of all people living in Switzerland are gathered in the country’s metropolitan areas.

Despite its central location in the middle of Europe, it is neither part of the EU nor of the EEA. Every foreign national working in Switzerland must have a valid work permit. Work permits are usually granted together with residence permits. They are applied for by the employer rather than the prospective employee. EU citizens whose period of working in Switzerland exceeds three months require formal permits for residence and work. In general, EU and EFTA nationals have no difficulties in obtaining the necessary work permits. Working in Switzerland is far more complicated for people from countries outside the EU and EFTA. This can be done online via a form provided by the Federal Office for Migration.
