Visa & Resident Permit to work in Zurich

Hi all,

Needs some advice please. I've had a look around but posts look like from 2007, and i couldnt find exactly what I was looking for.

Im looking to begin work in Zurich 9th Jan 2012, with a swiss company with indefinite period. I now have the contract.

Im from London, British Citizen by birth. Ive yet to find somewhere to live in Zurich.

My questions:
1) Do i need a visa? -Ive seen various places say that UK expat just need resident permit, but on swiss portal im seeing all EU people looking to work longer than 3 months need a Visa. Is this right or have i missed something?

2) I know I need a residents permit(once ive found somewhere to live) but i have 3 months to sort this from when i arrive, and can work in perm job whilst this comes through. Is this right?

Cheers guys.

Re: Visa & Resident Permit to work in Zurich

This thread should explain it all for you.

EU Permits - A few bullet points

Basically, as EU citizen you do not need a visa. However, you do need to register upon your arrival at the local commune, even if in temporary housing.

Would anyone know of the limitations for Americans? I presume we would need visas as well for all of this.
