Switzerland has one of the highest living standards in the world, with the Swiss cities of Zurich, Geneva, Bern, and Basel repeatedly ranked among the top 10 most liveable cities in the world. Switzerland’s stable and secure political and economic environment, well-developed financial system, beautiful nature, convenient transportation, diverse language environment, high-quality labor force, and excellent medical system make Switzerland an ideal place to do business and settle down. Having a Swiss residence permit also allows visa-free entry to any EU member state.
In order to attract international high-net-worth individuals, Switzerland has a special relocation program, whereby the Swiss residence permit can be granted to a foreigner provided that he/she pays an annual lump sum taxation negotiable with the respective Swiss tax authority.
Besides, setting up or investing in Swiss companies, especially tech companies, and making substantial economic contributions to Switzerland may also allow foreigners to relocate to Switzerland.
