If you are considering removals to Switzerland, here are some of the reasons which makes a move to this country so attractive.


The top reason for relocating abroad is to get ahead in the job market and achieve a better salary. In fact, most of those who move abroad find that they have more disposable income than before. For this reason, Switzerland is certainly a very attractive country to move to because salaries here can be as much as double - or even triple – the salary of many other European countries. Studies show that those living in cities such as Geneva and Zurich have the highest incomes in the world. Many of the jobs for expats revolve around finance, banking and insurance.


If you are moving to Switzerland as a family, you can rest assured as the Swiss educational system is among the best in the world. In addition to the public schools, there are also a number of international schools and English schools in Switzerland. There are also 12 universities and seven regional associations of Higher Educational Institutions of applied sciences. Switzerland has the second highest number of foreign students in higher education (Australia has the highest).


The Swiss healthcare system is also among the world’s best and life expectancy is very high (79 years for men and 84 years for women). It is compulsory to take out healthcare insurance within three months of settling in the country. But, for this, you can expect excellent standards and high quality of care.


Switzerland is a country famous for its stunning scenery: dramatic mountains and calm and peaceful lakes. The temperature varies from place to place according to location and elevation. The climate tends to be more Mediterranean in the south and more continental in the north. Summers are normally warm and humid and temperatures can reach up to 30C in July and August. January and February are the coldest months.


If you are active and enjoy sport, Switzerland is a great place to settle. It is a country known for its winter sports activities, which include snowboarding, skiing and mountaineering and these are enjoyed by locals and natives alike. The country attracts more than 8 million international visitors each year, spending an estimated £10 billion. Visitors are attracted by the many tourist hot-spots and sporting destinations, including the world famous ski resorts of Verbier and Zermatt.


Switzerland is a multi-national country which is open to foreigners. Indeed, more than 20 per cent of the population is made up of resident and temporary foreign workers. There are also as many as four official languages: German, French, Italian and Romansh. English is also commonly spoken and there are many opportunities for English speaking workers. However, it is always worthwhile speaking the language of the canton you are moving to, to help with the settling in process.


Another of the common reasons why people relocate abroad is for a better lifestyle. Switzerland is a very safe place to live and raise a family and is, in fact, one of the safest places to settle in Europe. Violent crime is almost unheard of. However, there is petty crime such as pickpockets in the touristy areas. The emergency number to call in Switzerland is 117.


Switzerland has a history of neutrality and is one of the most stable democracies in the world. It also has a very stable economy.


Switzerland tops the list as the cleanest country in the world according to the Environmental Performance Index. The country has a reputation for cleanliness and care of its environment. 

Family Friendly

Finally, people also choose to live here because they believe they are giving their family a better quality of life. Many British people who move here feel their children will be more secure in Switzerland and that their off-spring will grow up in a child friendly environment.
