  • Get a permit for a temporary work;
  • Get a vacancy of a qualified specialist with a preliminary issued working visa;

Touristic Swiss visa will let you stay a restricted time period without the right of buying property or working. In order to stay legally on the territory of the European state you need to get visa type A, B, or C. Each type of visa gives certain privileges to their holder.

In order to stay in this country for living, you need to follow common visa regulations, rules, and standards. Swiss labour market is focused on their local citizens at the first place, and then it considered foreign candidates.

Types of visa for Switzerland:

This permission allows to stay in the country only for the applicant, not for members of his family. Visa A is valid for 9 months, after which it is necessary to return home. You can make the next entry no earlier than in 3 months.
