Integrate! Learn about Swiss Insurance, Taxes & more! A Züri Expats Event

Integrate! Learn about Swiss Insurance,Ask at the Lion Bar or just follow the signs of Zurich eXpats that lead you the way.

  • Dear Zurich newcomer and fellow expat,

    Moving to a new country can be a real challenge. As well as adjusting to a new culture and getting to grips with a new language, there are friends to meet, apartments to find and – occasionally – paper work to fill in, thanks to Switzerland’s unique administrative and financial system.

    All in all, it’s a bit of a mission.


    But the good thing is there are plenty of veteran expats in our group who would love to help you feel at home in Zurich as soon as possible. And at this evening's workshop on Wednesday, you’ll have the chance to meet with some of these experienced ‘Züri Expat’ members to find out more about this fantastic city.


    •[masked] A warm welcome from the The Züri Expats designed to help you find your feet in the city’s social scene.

    Still not convinced? If you’ve been asking some of the following questions, after your arrival in Switzerland, then this workshop is for you…

    – How can I save taxes, even if I have a B or L Permit?
    – How can I manage to fulfill the dream of owning my own four walls?
    – What exactly do the deductions on my salary slip mean?
    – How should I pick the right health insurance plan for myself and/or my family?
    – What is the three-pillar-system (pension, retirement) and what details do I have to pay attention to?
    – Do I overpay for my insurance coverage in general?

    The event is for all NEWCOMERS and Expats - we look forward to meeting with you!

    Best regards,
    John, Züri Expats, The City of Zurich,  Sascha SVAG
