Checklist: Arriving in Switzerland

Relocate with confidence

Moving to Switzerland requires packing up and shipping your household and personal goods, finding a new home, researching options for child care and education, and registering with the Swiss and local government. Packimpex supports you every step of the way as you relocate. This support can be helpful, especially if you do not speak the local language or if you want to benefit from the insider knowledge of our local consultants when it comes to finding insurance, opening your bank accounts, arranging telecom services or filing your taxes.

Home-finding Support in Switzerland

Free yourself from bureaucracy and administration and maximise your chances of getting the home you want

The Swiss housing market is tough, especially if you are trying to find a home before you move to Switzerland.

Are you tired of having your rental application turned down because you called from abroad or didn’t speak in French or German? Queuing around the block with 50 other house-hunters to view a downtown apartment isn’t your thing?

Then you’ll be happy to know that Packimpex will find you a home in Switzerland. You will see doors open when your viewing request or rental application comes from Packimpex, Switzerland’s relocation market leader.

Our approach is tried and tested. We will find you the best possible home.

Support with mandatory registration in Switzerland

Packimpex can guide you through the process after your arrival

After you move to Switzerland, Packimpex can help you and your family register in person at the office of your local communal authority. This is a mandatory step in the relocation process and something that needs to be taken care of within eight days of moving to Switzerland and before your first working day. We will provide you with a checklist of the documents you will require for the registration process, arrange an appointment with your local authorities, accompany you in person to the office, and facilitate communication with the authorities.

Allowing Packimpex to guide you will ensure that you understand what is happening at every stage of the process and that you and your family are properly registered without any issues.

Finding a school and child care in Switzerland

Enrol your child in a school or daycare centre with Packimpex’s assistance

At Packimpex, we believe that children come first. We will work together with you so that your family understands the education and child care options that are available around your new home. Choosing where your children will attend school should be done as early as possible in the relocation process. The length of the relocation assignment, the ages of your children, their current curriculum and their plans for further education are all important factors to consider when researching education options in Switzerland.

Our Relocation Consultants, many of whom have children of their own, will explain exactly how the Swiss education system works and will support you as you decide whether to enrol them at an international school or a local Swiss school. Our services include giving you advice, arranging accompanied visits to the schools you are interested in and assisting you with registration.
