Permits for citizens of EU/EFTA states
Since June 1, 2007, Switzerland allocates no more immigration quota to EU-citizens from the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, Greece, Great Britain, Ireland, Island, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and Spain. Since May 1, 2011, in addition no immigration quota is allocated to EU-citizens from the following countries: Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Citizens from these countries may apply for a residence and work permit by presenting a signed Swiss working contract or stating their intentions to set up a Swiss business on their own.

EU-Citizens from Bulgaria and Romania still need to apply for a working permit. The employer needs to prove to the authorities that no one could be found in the Swiss labor market to do the job.

Permits for citizens of Non-EU/EFTA states
Non-EU/EFTA citizens are still subject to the Swiss immigration quota system. Only highly qualified or specialized management personnel are eligible for a work permit. Moreover, Swiss employers who intend to employ a citizen from a non-EU/EFTA state need to prove to the authorities that no qualified person in Switzerland or in any of the EU/EFTA states can be found to perform the respective job. An exception is made with respect to employees being transferred within an international company.

Registration
Persons of foreign nationality must register with Office for Migration within 14 days of their first arrival in Baar or their moving here from another canton in Switzerland. In this connection the following documents have to be presented:
• Passport or identity card for nationals of an EU/EFTA Country
• Assurance of residence permit if the employer is in another canton
• 2 passport photos
• Residence Permit for foreigners with confirmation of departure from the previously registered town or municipality
• Proof of medical- and accident insurance

After the registration with the Office for Migration in Zug the registration will be forwarded directly to the Baar Residents’ Registry Office. It is not necessary for you to appear in person at the Residents’ Registry Office.

Non-EU/EFTA nationals planning to move to Baar are advised to first make their application to the Office for Migration and only to move here once the residence permit has been issued.

Arrange all your insurance coverage, especially the compulsory health insurance. Everyone is free to choose an insurance company for this purpose. Every person who is in Switzerland for more than 3 months must be insured by a recognized health insurance company, providing basic sickness coverage in accordance with Swiss Federal Law on Health Insurance.

Moving within the Canton of Zug / Moving Abroad
If you move within the canton you must officially confirm termination of residence in your previous municipality at the local Residents’ Registry Office. In this connection foreign residents must present their residence permits.
