Over the last few years States have generally had the tendency to limit the access to their territory to foreign citizens wishing to take up residence there. Instead, States have promoted national preference. Switzerland approaches immigration in a similar manner, especially since the popular initiative called “Stop mass immigration” was accepted on 9 February 2014. Moreover, Switzerland has plans to further tighten its legislation in the immigration area.
In this context, it is essential for citizens of foreign nationalities planning to move their domicile to Switzerland to be well informed about the applicable rules pertaining to immigration in order to identify which residence permit to apply for (L permit, B permit, 120-days permit,…) and increase their chances of obtaining it.
