Re: Can I set up a bank account in Zurich without my work permit?

I opened my account (Raiffeisen, Nyon) with just my UK Passport and Work Contract (in English).

At first the Raiffeisen Manager said no, you need a permit, but I said a colleague had just opened their account with UBS without a permit and I suppose I could go to UBS, the reply was a simple "take a seat, let me find an application form.".


Plus, an "attestation" (certificate?) from the population office that your permit application has been received and is being considered will always be sufficient.

Your Company HR dept. should provide that for you.
