Mexican moving from Denmark to Basel

Hi All,

I have been following this forum for some weeks and now that i got the YES from the authorities (work/residence) it is time to introduce myself a bit.

I have been living & working in DK (denmark) for the last 3 1/2 years and now its time to say goodbye to DK and welcome to CH and start to work for a swiss company.

I will relocate with my wife (polish) to basel. I expect to arrive in June and she will arrive later.

This forum has been really very very useful for me, from where to search for apartments to where to buy a SIM card, etc

C u soon.

Re: Mexican moving from Denmark to Basel

Hi jac88

Welcome to the forum and soon to Switzerland.

It's good you've been able to find your way around the forum and source relevant information in advance of your move. That's a huge bonus as you well know already and if you're a brown sugar lover, well there are tons of posts on where to get that too.

There are many active, friendly EFers based in Basel and I'm sure some of them will be welcoming you as well soon.

Additionally, there are a number of Mexicans on the forum, two of whom I know are regular contributors here - coco.nails and Ouchboy.

All the best with your move and enjoy!

You're welcome sweetie and thank you for saying that.

I think it's great when someone actually makes the effort to post an introduction (so many don't bother), so I think it's nice to give back on that as much as possible. I've noticed you and several others do too.

Re: Mexican moving from Denmark to Basel

Hi Jac88,

Welcome to the forum!

I hope you´ll like it here in Basel - it´s quite different from Denmark, but in my opinion, better in a good way (being Danish, I´m allowed to say that )
And since you´ve been there 3 1/2 years, it´s certainly time to leave before you have to start paying the ´real´ tax level

Hope to see you around when you get here

hi, well I always paid full tax so there were other reasons to relocate, what were your reasons to move to CH ?

In Basel there's a couple of places that serve Tex-Mex and one or two dishes of Mexican food. Besides that, there are some family business that provide catering, like "Con sabor casero" in Basel or www.tacos-usw.ch in Zurich.
