Gathering information.

The Internet provides a host of information. Be careful with statements from Forums, use it as a hint and go to official Websites. Things might apply and be correct for one person but not for you - you never know the full story and circumstances. Also people might have misunderstood something - or simply legislation can have changed.


Above all, we recommend to consult the Websites below. 


Swiss Sources: 

  •  Swiss Federal Departement of Foreign Affairs (FDFA)
  • 'Organisation for Swiss living abroad'- Organisation for Swiss living abroad with useful information about topics like insurance, AHV etc.


Australian Sources:


If you are looking at a particular state to live in, the different Australian States/Territories have great Websites for immigrants, e.g Live in Melbourne/VIC (State Government Victoria).
