Salaries are high but so are expenses. Just because it looks like a lot of money doesnít mean youíll actually live a better life.

If your looking to move here only because you have a higher (on paper) salary and you donít have the specialization to get a company to sponsor your work permit, Itís maybe not going to be the El Dorado you think it is.
The expenses are a matter want do you need and what is important for you.
If you don't need a car, don't like eating out, stay away from expensive meat products or don't have an expensive mobile subscription, you can save a lot of money.
Currently shopping outside switzerland is not possible, if the borders will be open again, you can save a lot.
The swiss tax system prefers single households, the costs of raising a child and childcare here in switzerland are very expensive .
