bank account without Swiss address

I already live in Switzerland for some time and I had a UBS account but in the meantime, I returned to my home country while I'm working remotely. I would like to have a bank account with my current home address (Portugal) to keep my money safe there but UBS require a fee of 30CHF per month.
How can I do it and how avoid big fees, I just need a saving account with e-banking to receive my salary. No need for cards or withdraw regularly.

Re: bank account without Swiss address

Don't you get the hint? Banks really don't like dealing with non residents. Unless you have a few mils, in which case I'm sure your private banker would be more than happy to discuss special arrangements

Anyhow, cheapest I know is BCGE: Kunden mit Wohnsitz ausserhalb der Schweiz - CHF 18/Quartal. Beware that they lost their cantonal guarantee, although I guess you don't care seeing as you banked with UBS
