Expats moving to Switzerland will find that the prosperous, orderly cities and cantons of mountainous Switzerland make for an ideal destination for relocation. Foreign workers have long been integrated into the economy, particularly the financial and diplomatic sectors, where the demand for international expat workers is high. In fact, over 20 percent of Switzerland’s overall population are expats -and most of these are employed as skilled professionals.
The cost of living is exceptionally high, especially in the key expat destinations of Geneva and Zurich; although, above average salaries compensate for this point of concern. Crime is a rarity, and social problems virtually non-existent. Furthermore, the country’s education and healthcare systems are world-renowned, and its infrastructure meticulously maintained.
Switzerland runs likes clockwork, appropriate for a country famed for its watch making, and is a point of great pride for the fastidious Swiss. For expats, this means that life here is a trouble-free, if not a slightly sanitised, experience.
