    Working in Switzerland and living in France, what are the benefits ?

    Switzerland is a country with attractive economic dynamism, and the fame of big cities like Lausanne or Geneva is well established. Salaries are higher and attract more and more French employees. Many, however, make the choice to stay in France.

    The benefits of cross-border status

    Thanks to existing agreements between Switzerland and the European Union, the French working in Switzerland enjoy the status of "frontier". To become a frontier worker, you must reside at least one day per week in your home in France and work for a Swiss company.
    Once you have your G permit (Border Work Permit), you will enjoy several significant benefits compared to your situation.

      On average, a Swiss employee earns the equivalent of an executive in France

    • ​greater job security
      The unemployment rate in Switzerland is one of the lowest in Europe. Swiss companies offer many benefits to their employees and encourage career development internally.
