Disclaimer: No first-hand experience.

The impression I get from the local news here in Switzerland is that Liechtenstein is incredibly conservative, I don't think they will be particularly open.

But on a more fundamental level you are the one who is going to study there, why not come over and have a look and do some independent research rather than asking a random bunch of strangers - we don't know where your career/research interests lie and how open you are going to be to assimilating into a foreign culture, nor how the man on the Vaduz Omnibus will react to you.

Re: question about liechtenstein

The folk I have known who have worked in Liechtenstein have all lived just over the border in CH. In fact one guy told me you can't even get a permit to live there unless you have about half a billion in loose change. Or something like that.

Do you have an invitation to study in Liechtenstein... or is that just a wish?

If you can study there... good for you. If you can manage to get a permit to stay after your studies, then great. Like Switzerland, if you don't have a special golden talent, don't count on getting a permit to stay.

Only thing I can suggest is study hard and make a good impression during your internship. Keep on your toes, make good contacts and keep your nose out of trouble. You might be hired directly after graduation - as Liechtenstein has a bank on just about every corner (exaggerated of course ).
</IMO>

I do know, that if a company/bank wants you, most can pull strings to keep you with the right work permits. Though, you may have to get a permit to live in Switzerland - Just across the border you could live anywhere between Sennwald and Trübbach - or further Chur, Wallensee, St. Gallen. Closest to Vaduz is Sevelen or Buchs.

Also, public transportation within FL works good... but only the bus. The FL or CH bus will get you over the border into Switzerland. From there you can catch the train if you need to travel beyond the Rhein valley.

I really like Liechtenstein, small and quiet as it is.

However, you effectively won't have the option to stay after studying. Most immigrants to Liechtenstein do so by marriage or are sponsored in by employers. The country issues I think 22 B permits to EU nationals per year. To non-EU, there's no such system.

Use the time in Liechtenstein to perhaps find a company that would sponsor you after your studies (you should be allowed to work up to 35% as long as the work is relevant to your studies - and perhaps a Uni L master's is attractive to them), or indeed use the time to get to know Switzerland where the job market is bigger.

liechtenstein

Hi everyone, I'm just looking for bit of advice. I'm thinking of going to Liechtenstein to study, and I'd like to work there after I'm done. As a non EU resident (Asian, actually), do I even have a chance to be granted any sort of work visa after I'm done with my masters- or am I straight away going to be sent back home ?
I'd appreciate any help/ guidance. Thanks!

Hey osama,
I'm looking information on working in Liechtenstein as well. How is it working out for you? did you get a job yet? What's the University like?

Re: question about liechtenstein

I would say to learn German a bit... A B1 will open you several doors, specially renting apartments, get along with the team mates, prospective employers, and would definitely open you doors in CH...

Isn't B1 really hard to get if you're non EU? Just the impressions I've gotten from reading all the posts. I'm surprised though that Osama still went on to Liechtenstein after everything was explained here (about how hard it is to get a job etc).
