Top 8 Multi-national Switzerland Companies That Sponsors Work Visa For Immigrants 

Switzerland has long been attractive for foreigners, probably because of its high salaries and low taxes. Interestingly, some well-known global pharmaceutical companies like Swiss Re, Roche, and Novartis and financial institutions like Credit Suisse, Zurich Insurance and others like Nestle and Glencore all have open job positions that promise visa sponsorships for qualified foreign workers.

According to information on Switzerland’s official immigration, those from non-EU/EFTA countries who want to work in Switzerland must be highly qualified, i.e. a manager, specialist, or other skilled professional.

This generally means that you should have a degree from a university or a higher education institution, as well as some years of professional work experience.

On the other hand, those who intend to stay in Switzerland for an extended period must also meet some other requirements that will support their long-term career and social integration. Professionalism, social adaptability, language, talents, and age are all important considerations in general.

To get a job in Switzerland as a foreigner, your employer in Switzerland must additionally demonstrate that there is no qualified candidate from Switzerland or an EU/EFTA country to fill the employment vacancy.

Furthermore, the wage, social security contributions, and employment terms for foreign workers must conform with conditions customary to the region, profession, and sector.

To commence your job search, here are some global companies of Swiss origin that are hiring and may offer visa sponsorship:
