The proven Swiss immigration law professionals at MME law firm are experienced in Swiss immigration law.

Immigration law in Switzerland is currently undergoing a process of constant change. With respect to worker’s mobility, the situation on the Swiss labor market has significantly changed during the last few years from a very regulated, rather restrictive regime to a more and more liberalized regulatory framework, particularly with respect to EC (including EFTA) nationals (“EC-Nationals“). Since Switzerland has basically a dual system for the admission of foreign potential workers/residents, there are numerous distinctive differences between the regulatory worker’s mobility framework for EC-Nationals (see II below) and citizens of other countries than the EC (including US citizens: “Third Country Nationals”).

To summarize, EC-Nationals can benefit from agreements on the free movement of persons. However, it has to be noted that quotas apply for these citizens as well for certain types of permits until May 31, 2014. Also, Nationals from Rumania and Bulgaria are subject to special interim provisions. At the moment, their status is still comparable to Third Country Nationals. With regard to Third Country Nationals, as a principle, only a limited number of management level employees, specialists and other qualified employees can get a work permit.

MME assists clients with all administrative and immigration law related matters regarding residence and work permits, in particular for executive employees and highly qualified professionals (including cadre transfer and transfer of specialists within a corporation). MME is experienced and knowledgeable in this field of practice and able to successfully advise companies as well as highly qualified employees in all residence and work permit matters.
