How much money do I need to have to obtain Swiss residency?
Home > FAQ > General questions > Money

Contrary to popular belief, how much money you have is not the key element to obtaining Swiss residency.

Of course you do need to show that you have the means to support yourself and not fall in need of Swiss poor relief.

But there are many other criteria you need to satisfy, and having a high net worth is not a substitute for satisfying other criterias.

If you are not sure whether you would qualify for Swiss residency, based on your assets or other criteria, the easiest way to find out is to contact us with some details about yourself. We should be able to tell you quickly what your options are as well as the chances of success.
