Moving to Switzerland

Emigrate to Switzerland

Living and/or working in Switzerland can be interesting for different reasons. This applies to a rentier who wants to live permanently in Switzerland, for someone who moves to Switzerland for his work or for someone who is planning to buy a second home. Among other advantages, Switzerland has one of the lowest crime rates in the world, is geographically central in Europe, has a favorable tax system, a strong economy and is ideally suited for highly educated people. Switzerland is divided into 26 cantons which are federal states. Under these cantons, the regulations can be very different because, among other things, it has its own constitution, immigration policy and tax rules. Switzerland has a mountain climate and a Mediterranean climate. It is therefore very important to find out in advance what you expect in Switzerland if you decide to move to Switzerland.

Moving to Switzerland

Moving to Switzerland is daily routine for Yellow Move. Every week we are moving household good inventories to and from Switzerland, from small to large. Switzerland is not a part of the European Union and has its own customs rules. Because of this, it is very important that before a move will start, to check in detail whether the import conditions can be met. The goal is that all items can be imported free of import duties and taxes into Switzerland. Switzerland has its own ‘application for customs clearance of household effects’ (Form 18.44) which is the basis to import free from all taxes and duties. Yellow Move is familiar with all necessities and documentation and advises for free. Request a no-obligation consultation and we will come to you to look, advise and give you a removal quote for free.

Recently I moved from the Netherlands to Washington DC and a part to Sri Lanka. Everything was perfectly prepared and completely handled according to schedule. Above all, no damage incurred in both transports. Thank you for the good care. Former ambassador of Sri Lanka in the Netherlands.

Despite the management of my relocation in the Netherlands was managed in the Netherlands. I am very satisfied during my relocation from Jakarta to Vancouver Canada. I will certainly use the services of Yellow Move again when there is reason to do so. Mr. H.J.M Meijer.

My move from the South of France to the Netherlands Haarlem went perfectly. Beforehand I was very nervous, but the ladies on the phone at Yellow Move fully supported and helped me where needed. The movers where very friendly and professional. Congrats. Mrs. Kamschuur.
