Whether someone receives a work permit in Switzerland depends on various factors, such as the country of origin, education and skills, and fixed quotas.
Employers who employ or intend to employ foreign domestic employees are in certain cases subject to registration and licence requirements according to aliens law. The necessity of registration and licence requirements depends on the country of origin of the employee.
For citizens from Croatia or a non-EU 27/EFTA state, a work permit is mandatory for taking up employment. For these citizens, priority is given to nationals and there is an annual maximum number of permits (quotas). In order to obtain a work permit, an official - very complex - application must be submitted to the relevant work permit office.
The registration and licence requirements process according to aliens law is not part of the services of quitt. For more information we recommend you contact the Cantonal migration office.
