Foreigners who wish to take up employment in Switzerland, need to apply for a work Visa.
Once you have found employment, the employer then seeks authorisation for a work visa on your behalf from the authorities in Switzerland while you apply for an entry visa in your home country. You will get your residence and work permit when you arrive in Switzerland. This permit allows you to live and work in Switzerland.
Processing time for this visa can take 6-12 weeks.
You can bring your spouse and kids with you.
The general application process is:
Get the employment letter or Work contract from the employer in Switzerland
Prepare your visa application and gather other required documents for it.
Apply for an entry visa and prepare to move to Switzerland
