Swiss residents Working in France

How much effort does it take for Swiss residents to work in France? Wether it be in definite, or very short termed? Curious for a future project.

I think it would depend on if they were also Swiss or EU citizens, as that should be no problem, but non Swiss/EU is a different matter.

Re: Swiss residents Working in France

It would be for a Swiss citizen. Would they just arrive in France, and register at the Prefecture, or ask at a french consulate for a Carte de Sejour from here?

It doesn't make economic sense.

Unless you live in Swiss and have a job in France...

Re: Swiss residents Working in France

Wow! This is the very first time this question has been asked! Normally speaking it's 99.999% the other way round but AFAIK, there should not be any problem for a Swiss person or a person with Swiss residence to work in France Voisine. If the person is an EU national, then basically they would have the right to live and work in France, as many of us do, very happily and without the stringent and rather strict regulations pertaining to CH. Can we help you with any other questions? Please feel free to ask.

Re: Swiss residents Working in France

Would the CH person have to file for a Carte de Sejour, or some other kind of short term work permit? Where would they file? In CH or upon arrival in France? Is there different rules for those over or under the age of 26? How much in advance is required to file?

When working in France how is the social retirement related benefits converted? When that person retires will they have to file for benefits from France and CH? Or are they some how re routed thru CH? Say this person was only going to work in France for a year or two(as pertaining to the retirement benefits).

Thanks.

Re: Swiss residents Working in France

Whereas I would love to be able to help, these questions are too specific to answer unfortunately. We are retired, so do not need a carte de sejour [in fact I have heard that they have been abandoned but am not certain that this applies to working people]. Additionally, we retired here from Belgium which is another EU country [not Switzerland] so our situation is somewhat different. The very best thing to do under the circumstances is approach the Mairie in the place where you are thinking of going to work, as it is they who would supply you with all the necessary documentation and relevant [and legal] information. From time to time we have to "prove that we are still alive"[!] to the Belgian administration to ensure continuing payment for my OH's pension - the people at our local Mairie are friendly, cheerful, helpful and always have time to answer queries.
This area of the Haute Savoie has the best of both worlds, easy access to CH and far lower prices! We are extremely happy here and have never regretted our decision to come and live in France. Our advice - Go For It!

Re: Swiss residents Working in France

Forgot to add that there is a splendid forum where many or at least some of these questions are probably answered : Living France Forum - free of course. There is another one too, Total France, where if the questions are not answered in the above, you could post or perhaps find answers there too. Good luck. If needs be, we could go to our local Mairie and ask for more information.........
