How to plan your return
The Ticino and federal governments offer a wide range of services that give help and support to Swiss nationals who want to return home, providing answers to all sorts of questions. This page contains the addresses to contact and an overview of the services on offer, including a series of leaflets and documents created with those who want to return to Ticino in mind.
The OSA activities
The Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA) has created a data sheet with information on different aspects, including social insurance and finding accommodation and employment.
Those who want to get a foreign academic or professional qualification recognised in Switzerland can contact the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation.
The portal ch.ch
This website brings together under one (virtual) roof a large quantity of tools and information related to news, current regulations in Switzerland and the customs procedures to be followed for those returning home.
Those who have obtained a teaching qualification abroad and want to have it recognised in Switzerland should contact the Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education.
The portal is managed by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). It puts professionals and companies in touch, working in partnership with the services offered by the canton and regional employment offices.
It was founded in 2004 and is backed by the Association of Ticino’s Industries (AITI). Its various functions include acting as an intermediary between businesses and people looking for employment.
The project is aimed at young people aged between 18 and 24 who are resident or domiciled in Ticino and who hold a secondary school leaving certificate. The aim is to facilitate their entry into the employment market.
The easiest way to stay in touch with the various organisations presented on OltreconfiniTi and to maintain links between Ticino citizens who live outside the canton and those at home.
