International Organisations

Information on working for international organisations within Switzerland...

Employees of international organisations receive a special identity card (Identitätskarte or Carte de Légitimation). It entitles the holder to live in Switzerland without a work or residence permit.

Note: An employee of an international organisation or foreign permanent mission is subject to the labour law of the country that employs them. Swiss labour law does not apply and the Swiss labour courts have no jurisdiction.
