Welcome!

If you're an EU citizen (of the original 15 countries, I believe) then there is no limit to how far you can live from the border (since 2007).

I live 400km from the border and had no problem obtaining a cross-border 'G' permit.

I should add that it is your Swiss employer who needs to apply to the Canton on your behalf, preferably before you actually start work.
Note that it is the canton (not the commune) that deals with 'G' permits.

Re: Geneva/France frontallier??

Does anyone know the correct procedure/sequence if one is already working and residing in GE (B Permis held) and moves to France?
I presume the company must still apply for the 'Frontallier' permis?

Any other info/experience about this move would be welcome (taxes, healthcare, unemployment protection etc)

hoss
