Did you know that more than one in ten Swiss lives abroad? The number has more than doubled since 1980. This graphic illustrates that the Swiss don’t like to stray too far from home.
At the end of 2015, more than 760,000 Swiss lived abroad. Most of the Swiss emigrating abroad are young: the average age for women is 33 years old and for men, it’s 35.
France is the biggest draw for expats, with a Swiss community of almost 200,000 people. I would be one of those! The latest date from the Federal Statistical Office shows that 3,982 Swiss moved there in 2014. Second on the list is Germany with 86,774 expats at the end of 2015 and 2,667 new arrivals from Switzerland by the end of 2014.
So where have you come from? Where would you like to move to?
