How a foreigner can permanently living in Switzerland.

If you are not Swiss citizen, you need a residence permit, in order to be able to live more than three months in Switzerland, since the tourist visa does not permit a stay for more than three months. There are various permit types and different ways to obtain them, depending of the purpose of your residence in Switzerland.

If you are going to Switzerland with the intention to work you must find first a work, which should agree to a certain requirements. You must be qualified as a highly specialised professional, both from intellectual and practical points of view. This will give you the right for getting the Residence permit but only for a certain.

If you intend to come to Switzerland with the purpose to found a company and to work for CH, then usually you will not have problems related with getting the Residence Permit.

If you plan tocome to Switzerland with the intention to study then you must then find a school, which is suitable for your needs and make a request through this school with the aim to get stay permission for study reasons.

In addition, you wish to come to Switzerland an to live on an unearned income in Switzerland. If your declared income is high enough and you intend to live in Switzerland, and therefore not only to use this country as a fiscal and mail address, then you can apply for the permit B, that is a permission of residence which has an annual duration and gives you the right to live in CH during one year, and at the same time you will be able also to pay significantly lower taxes then in other European countries. In such case generally one foreigner should posses the declared yearly income which is not less then CHF  150'000.-- is able to get the Residence Permit and furthermore, in this case the tax amount is about 30%.

One of the ways to get the Residence permit to stay in Switzerland is to marry a Swiss citizen and to obtain in such way the stay permission immediately; after 5 years of stay you can obtain  the domicile permission and the Swiss citizenship. That is the simplest way on condition that a proper family partner can be found.

It is useful to know that Switzerland favours the citizens of the Western European countries, when the decision is taken about the work permit or residence permit of Category B. One must thus decide whether he likes to get a work permit or  B-permit issues. Concerning the case of getting the stay permission in accordance with a fiscal convention, there are no special preferences.

Type of permit, which is issued by Switzerland for foreigners and that our company is also in a position to provide you:

The first permit, what is given to the majority of foreigners is the permit B, it concerns a yearly permit, with a condition of being employed or of living really in Switzerland for a sufficient period of a year.

If you want to come to Switzerland to live on the income from a company localized to outside of Switzerland (company manager, inheriting, being a famous sportsman, or movie-star), you can demand the so-called permit in accordance with fiscal convention, a version of the permit B that will allow you to pay taxes in comparison with the other European countries.

If in your country you are under suppression because of your political ideas or ethnical affiliation, then you can request for the permit for political refugees.

However, if you want to come into Switzerland to work as a season worker, then you must request for a special specialization the permit A.

Permit C is a full time residence permit, which permits you in the further to buy a real estate property for getting a profit, to operate and manage an independent company. In order to obtain this permit, you must for example to live during some years in Switzerland (5 - 10 years depending on the case) and show yourself as a loyal person without creating problems to the law-enforcement bodies.

The final phase is the acquisition of the Swiss citizenship to all the effects, which is generally granted after 12 years of residence in Switzerland. Moreover, it is necessary to pass an examination of knowledge of the Swiss history  and culture and to demonstrate that you have already integrated with the company where you live.
