An announcement by the Switzerland government was made in regard to workers from third countries. On June 24, 2020, it confirmed Switzerland’s decision to allow third-country citizens to come into the country from July 6, 2020.
Starting July 6, the Federal Council will ease the restrictions on the admission of third-country workers. Third-countries include non-EU states and EFTA states.
The member states of Switzerland (cantons) will also proceed with processing residence applications from third-country citizens. These applicants are not willing to work in Switzerland and include people like retirees. For them, the normal criteria will be followed.
Also, travelers from third-countries arriving for holiday will not be allowed entry into the country. This is because any stay planned for lesser than 90 days without necessity of a permit in the normal course will be authorized only when it is a case of special necessity.
The permissions granted from July 6 will benefit those who want to come to Switzerland and work in the tourism sector or want to take up training or education while working.
