Living in France and working in CH

Hi all,
if my home address is in France can I still work in Switzerland?

I thought that if I moved to France, then I would have to give up my Swiss permit.
Do Swiss-based companies still employ people from outside the borders of Switzerland to work in their offices, e.g. in Geneva?

You can work as a frontalieri with certain conditions. Your passport nationality is more important than whether you are on the Swiss side of the border - this again if you qualify for being a frontalieri....

In Ticino there are 60 000 people coming from every day to work in Lugano and surrounds and think the number is the same if not more for Geneva and France so think yes, you can live in France and work in Switzerland. Its best to check the latest conditions on the Geneva immigration pages.

If you're an EU national then you should be able to exchange your current permit for a G (cross border) permit.

If you're non-EU you won't be able to do it as you need to have lived in a border zone for 6 months before you'd be eligible. And it's not as easy for non-EU nationals to get G permits.
