Overview  

The government of Switzerland has extended the Services Mobility Agreement (SMA) with the United Kingdom until 31 December 2025.

This change will allow Switzerland to continue to permit UK professionals to provide a service in Switzerland for a maximum period of 90 days per calendar year without requiring a visa so long as the professional notifies the government of Switzerland. For additional insight, check here.
