Moving to Switzerland – Some Facts

If you are moving to Switzerland, the chances are that this is a career related move unless you are in the millionaire bracket and you are about to join Lewis Hamilton, Roger Moore and Phil Collins. As Switzerland is not an European Union member, the process is a little different from moving to Belgium or moving to Holland, but it is possible. If you are from Britain there is an agreement between Switzerland and the EU which makes it comparatively easy when compared to non EU nationals. The regulations regarding moving to Switzerland to work were relaxed eight years ago, and it is planned that by 2014 quotas for work permits issued to people from the EU will be dropped.

For those who come from outside the European Union, moving to Switzerland is a lot more difficult. Work permits will only be issued if you can prove that you have a particular skill which an employer cannot find within the country, which means that very few people from outside the EU actually get the chance to emigrate to this country.

Assuming you fit the criteria, what will you need to do when you are moving to Switzerland? Perhaps the most important thing is to find a company which has plenty of experience when it comes to transporting your furniture and belongings. With this in mind, you are in the right place because the people at European Removal Experts have the knowledge and experience to make your move a smooth one.

Moving Abroad Doesn’t Have To Be A Hassle

Living in Europe, we have the great benefit of being able to move freely between countries that are part of the European Union. When you live in the UK, however, it is easy to forget that this is a great benefit and one that is easy to carry out. Whilst other Europeans with wanderlust can simply pack their belongings into their car and head off over a border or two, it does seem that to move freely across Europe is quite a large undertaking when you have a large body of water cutting you off from the mainland.

However, whilst viewing property might have traditionally been a little more tricky, the rise of the internet and cheap flights means that heading out to view carefully chosen properties is unlikely to be too expensive or too much of a hardship.

And when it comes to the actual act of moving to France or moving to Belgium, again it is much easier than it has ever been. At European Removal Experts we specialise in trans-continental removals and can make moving to France as stress-free as moving to Runcorn, but ultimately a whole lot more exciting and rewarding.
