Re: Hi - Moving to Switzerland and looking for recommendations

We come from Cape Town and love all the lifestyle things you describe. We have lived in Basel, Lenzburg and Luzern in Switzerland. We love love Luzern! It’s the perfect size, lovely small city, great gyms and restaurants, a little but not too much international vibe, lake views, promenades, mountains close by. We wouldn’t live anywhere else in German-speaking Switzerland now.
The commute though is a killer for you. For the first 18 months, my husband had a commute like that and quality of life was very much reduced because of it. Maybe if work-from-home is a possibility for at least 1-2 days/week, I would then consider it, otherwise no.

Re: Hi - Moving to Switzerland and looking for recommendations

Brexit is complete, the transition period has ended. With the start of the year the UK has become a 3rd party country like any other.

Hopefully, OP's husband has applied last year for a B permit, otherwise he's probably not allowed to work at this point.

Consequentially, unless OP has already immigrated and formally registered last year, and further assuming her OP did apply for a B permit last year, her husband needs to formally apply for familiy reunification (see this official FAQ, family reunificaton point 1.), and if granted OP needs to pick up the Visa D in the country she's living at the moment (i.e. before immigrating).

Thus the couple needs to decide on the matrimonial home before OP's husband is advised to apply for family reunification because the application needs to be sumbitted to the Canton he's living in. If OP's language skills are relevant (no idea) her inexistent German vs basic French will probably limit the choice to the Romandie.

What about the dogs, do they need additional documentation, veterinary certificates perhaps and whatnot? No idea, just a thought.
@meloncollie, is your knowledge up-to-date (if that's even possible right now)?
