Very interesting. They actually say that there are equal opportunities here.

The opportunities may be equal. It is just that those who apply them are not.

Sure, but its proper writing is Broschüre

I'm sure it doesn't come as a surprise to you: you're wrong as usual.
It explains Switzerland's social and political system, it talks about high population density and diversity, its regional diversity etc. But you didn't bother reading it anyway I guess...

Being a long time member here I can assure you that the stories from other people on the Internet are sure entertaining, but surely not more objective than this brochure. Most expats have close to zero understanding of the Swiss political system and throw around a lot of half-knowledge and hearsay on anything from migration to taxes. I personally prefer entertaining to factual when coming on here, but a newcomer is probably better off with factual information from the government.

Re: integration brochure

Well at least if everyone read it they would know that this country is called Switzerland in English and that would be a good start here - and it would save members reporting thread titles with 'Swiss' in and Mods editing them....

Re: integration brochure

On a second note: For a country that continuously complains that there are so many foreigners here who do everything wrong all the time... why don't they use the moment you immigrate better to inform the newcomers?

When I moved to the Netherlands, I did not get some ten page brochure, but a massive book with easy explanations on pretty much all topics that turn up on EF repeatedly:
- all permit laws explained
- am I allowed to work? basics on employment regulations...
- taxes
- health insurances
- banking
- property laws (how does renting a flat work...)
- basics on many cultural pitfalls

The book was full of advertisement targeted at newcomers, from phone companies over health insurances to banks, so I guess they did not need much tax money to produce it.
