Rights to work in Swiss as a British

Any ideas, folks? Brexit is looming.

If I am deprioritzed then the same treatment should go on the Swiss and the EU in our country. Even further, same treatment across the Common Wealth and America.

After all London is a number two global city with a population of nine million. Surely, the Swiss wouldn’t want to lose access to our talented nation?

Re: Rights to work in Swiss as a British

Same as was In Ye Olde Days- if they want and need you, they will apply for a work permit for you and make it possible (as for me when I went to work in London in 1970) ..

but you won't be able to come over for 3 months to look around for a job.
As from 1st of Jan, as a 3rd country national and due to Covid, you won't even be able to come as a tourist

Here is the full text of the new rules from the Swiss government web site:

“UK nationals will qualify as third country nationals from 1 January 2021 and be subject to COVID-19 related entry restrictions given the end of the Brexit transition period and the end of the Free Movement of Persons Agreement (AFMP).

These restrictions for non-essential travel to Switzerland apply to third-country nationals coming from high-risk countries and have been in place since June 2020.

Therefore, if you are a UK national you may not enter Switzerland for non-essential travel (e.g. for the purpose of tourism) from 1 January 2021 for as long as the UK is categorized as a high-risk country by Switzerland and these restrictions for non-essential travel remain applicable in the Schengen area, of which Switzerland is a member.

It is already clear what will happen. And that there are more talented nations is also already clear.

After all London is a number two global city with a population of nine million.
Global cities are those who compete in global world and are able to attract global talents from everywhere. London Metropolitan Region's 9 millions are puny comparing to, for example, almost 60 millions of Pearl River Delta Metropolitan Region. It is hard to stay competitive in the modern world.

Re: Rights to work in Swiss as a British

Just because a city has a large population doesn't mean the skills/experience that Switzerland wants/needs happen to live there.

And anyway it's already long decided that as of the 1st January the UK will be treated as a 3rd country and come under the non-EU hiring criteria. If you thought it would be any different then you thought wrong.

I think that losing access to some of the British workforce may be in the Swiss national interests.

Why would I want to move to the UK ? Lower salary, lower quality of life, crap weather, xenofobic people, bad dentists, should I go on ?

Also OP, you might want to get the name of the country right. It's Switzerland, not Swiss.

Re: Rights to work in Swiss as a British

Maybe if you could spell deprioritized (or, indeed, Commonwealth and Switzerland), you'd be in with more of a chance. After all, many people here had to prove they were better than any local hire to get a permit (and succeeded).

Sadly, all you've demonstrated is that the collapse of educational standards in the UK (triggered by the loss of the O-level and Major's expansion of the universities and reinforced by every government since) is systemic and pathological.

Re: Rights to work in Swiss as a British

[deprioritize(Verb) reduce the level of priority.] is spelt correctly.

Yes, you are right, its Commonwealth.

If I have made a mistake, please excuse my English.

I am really surprised at just how hostile people are on this website. Where is the diplomacy? There are many insults delivered from bigots.

If your rights were affected, you would also seek to enquire and raise your concern.

I guess I shall just have to be patient and wait for the politicians to sort it out. This is only just the beginning.

As said, it's already sorted out. Brits are non-EU nationals from the 1st January - deal with it. If you have the skills/experience that a Swiss employer can make a good case for a permit for you then you may get one. If you don't and they can't, forget moving here. It really is that simple.

Anyway, according to your profile you have 4 nationalities including Swiss so I don't really know why you're even asking this question. If they're true, then it doesn't really affect you as you have two other EU nationalities plus the Swiss one.
