Permit requirements for working (EU citizen)

Hello,
I am just new to the forum...
I am a 20 year old student and would like to work in Switzerland from june 2007 until september 2007. I am an EU citizen (irish) and just wondered could anyone explain to me what kind of permit or visa i need..if any?
Sorry if this has been answered before, but everything i have found has regarded non-EU citizens.
I also have a possibility for a 6month internship next year with a swiss company and would also like to know what I would need for that regarding permits...

Thanks for reading.

As far as I know you don't need any visa for entering the country. However, you'll need a work permit if you want to work. For EU citizens the company hiring you can easily apply for a permit for you. Otherwise you can apply for temporary L permit while looking for job.

Re: Can you help?

in theory post-May it should be very easy with an EU passport. You will need a permit to work but it should be a formality.

The company offering the placement should be able to deal with these questions - they're the best ones to advise you as they should apply for the permit for you (I'd hope) and should know what to expect when offering placements to dodgy foreigners like yourself

Re: Can you help?

I have the same question that has "Mini-Moi". But probably now (July 2007)there is a different answer. It is true that we should register ourselves when we go to a foreign (even EU) country. Im italian and I needed a "Residence Card" in Spain.

Do we (EU citizens) need a special permit, or now with Schengen you just go with your passport and your photo?

Nothing new there - the answer is the same - whenever you take up resdience is any country you should register so that you pay taxes, social contributions, etc.

Don't know, and don't particularly care, about Spain's particular regulations.
