Provision of services for more than 90 days per calendar year

Temporary stays for the purpose of providing specific services not regulated by special agreements on the provision of services and which last longer than 90 working days per calendar year are not subject to the conditions of the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons (FZA) concluded by Switzerland and the EU. As a consequence, there is no entitlement on the basis of the FZA. The admission is based on the Foreign Nationals and Integration Act.


Foreign nationals may only be admitted to provide a temporary cross-border service under the cumulative conditions of the general interests of the economy, the salary and employment conditions, the personal requirements and quotas. The specific project and the purpose of the assignment have to be described in detail. The duration of the assignment has to be stated clearly.
