Short term hello from the UK...

Hi guys, my first post here

I holidayed in Switzerland last year and loved it. Talking to a colleague it sounds like a great place to live and I have an itch to live somewhere else that I feel the need to scratch, so I'm considering working there for a little while, or maybe making it a more permanent move.

While I'm here I'm hoping to learn about the Swiss lifestyle, where to live and work, how best to integrate and the legalities of bringing cars over, especially if it may be temporary.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

Moving here may not be so easy in a few weeks' time if the UK leave the EU without a deal. Your status would likely change from being an EU national to a non-EU one which has much harder criteria for getting hired.

Thanks guys.

@Medea, I know, I picked a bad time to be in a position to think about doing something like this! Never mind. I'll have to sit tight and see what happens for now

Hiya

Don't bring your UK car over, PITA. Buy a cheap used one here or use public transport. Seriously.

Re: Short term hello from the UK...

Thanks for the advice. Even temporarily, under six months? I like my car and it took me a while to find it, so I would be reluctant to sell it before trying Switzerland in case it doesn't work out

Re: Short term hello from the UK...

We brought our Swiss car to the UK for 2 years. Worked out fine. Cheap insurance was no problem. So I would say DO IT! I loved learning about the different cultures and traveling. I’m American married to a Swiss so if I can help in any way. Lmk ����
