Immigration and Residency How to live and work in Switzerland

Everyone planning to enter and stay in Switzerland must obtain a work/residence permit, and formally register with the Swiss authorities.

The process is complex and involves multiple authorities. It will only be successful if the correct immigration process for each individual family member has been followed.
