For all who made it till here – thank you for reading. Please get to know your peer members and integrate in this wonderful expat ecosystem of Zurich and its region.
Who are YOU anyway?
You are probably a needed Ausländer in Switzerland, whose productivity helps the Swiss economy maintain its high international standards. Here’s why;
Taxes / “1st-2nd-3rd-Säule” insurance system: how the Swiss residence permit system works in Switzerland (A, B, C) and what the available choices are. How does the tax system work here and what about my pension? What do I need to know to start a business?
Integrate and become a Swiss citizen: we can help you to prepare, and we provide all the details and steps to support your choices.
Or you leave again for your next assignment because of a better offer. Another expat life cycle begins. Our group is mainly build around the expats that stayed, but see no ad on to become SWISS citizen by ID but feel SWISS citizen by their efforts they gave to the SWISS society
Züri eXpats was formed to address this ongoing challenge. As reported by Rundschau on Swiss channel SF1 on February 26, 2013, we have a positive impact and work with the authorities to build better relationships and trust.
Our experiences were profiled in the hit play Expats (2013) at Neumarkt theater.
We help you to help yourself, and we change perceptions about expats.
Looking to the end of 2013 and beyond, what types of events shall we focus on?
This past year we organized a variety of professional, social, and cultural meetups, also planning numerous social gatherings around international highlights in Zurich. We organise per ani over 240 events in and around Zurich, and all over Switzerland.
Our highly qualified fellow Züri eXpats members help us
We do a lot with our four Meetup groups: Züri eXpats City Life Network, Züri eXpats Business Professionals, Züri eXpats Hike & Outdoor Sandbox, and Zurich Movie Fans. Altogether we have over 3000 highly educated members that contribute to 60% of the economic output of the Canton of Zurich.
We look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming events, to attend and contribute to the experience…whether you are Swiss or an Ausländer.
We NEED YOU; as a volunteer/sponsor
