Hello all. I am a Swedish-American moving to Zurich in September for the next ~3 years for a temporary research position at ETH.
Most of my life has been spent in the USA (primarily in college towns; the remaining years all in Sweden, mostly in Lund) but I figured I would take advantage of my EU passport and found a position in Europe.
From my initial research it looked like the Swedish passport would make life a lot easier as I don't need to wait for a visa. Little did I know Uncle Sam would follow me via FATCA...
I've already found the forum very helpful as I research finding accommodation and would like to thank the many people who have written such helpful comments on where to live in Zurich, all about Mietkaution/SwissCaution, and general banking for American citizens.
