Hello Everybody!

My name is Anna. Currently, my partner, myself and two parrots are living in the UK but we are trying to relocate to Switzerland. I found this website on google and I think it is fantastic and very helpful. Definitely will use it a lot before we move and hopefully after 😊.
Have a nice day!

Re: Hello Everybody!

Welcome to this beautiful country. I hope you will enjoy it.

Which canton will you move to? I will move to Lausanne in next month.

Re: Hello Everybody!

Hi Guys and thank you,
I am still in a process of looking for work. Not sure what salary I should ask for. I had a company where they said they cant pay more than CHF120k but then another one paying only up to CHF100k. I have done some reasearch and people are paid in similar roles up to CHF150k. Difficult decisions.

Not knowing your field, your experience, the unique value you bring to the table, etc. it's hard to say. But do be aware that salaries have fallen in several industries and for certain job types/levels in recent years. The days of the Swiss gravy train are largely over in some, perhaps many, areas. So, if the information you are looking at is more than a year old, be careful.

and two parrots
'Mrs Doolittle' is the EF parrot expert, perhaps you could contact her for advice. In addition to EU/international regulations wrt moving parrots, Switzerland has some unique regulations around accomodation, etc. that need to be factored into your moving plans.

To get you started, this from the BLV:

And on accomodation and welfare, in German, French or Italian only:
https://www.blv.admin.ch/blv/de/home...papageien.html

But do contact Mrs D, she is a wealth of knowledge.

Welcome to Switzerland. I am sure like many of us you (and you family) will fall in love with this beautiful country very soon. And to sail your boat through ups and downs you have already found a good forum
