Many people want to emigrate straight after graduating from high school, to ‘make a proper start in life’ far away from the home country, and to launch their careers. Others progress towards this at a gentler pace and only begin to consider emigration once the children have left home and they are free to begin a new chapter in their lives. Then there are yet others who decide to emigrate once they retire, for example to spend their twilight years in the picturesque natural setting of a country blessed with sunlight.
Regardless of whether you are young or old, and no matter what your personal reasons for considering emigration from Switzerland might be, the Big Day when you finally leave your native country behind is a day that calls for meticulous planning. After all, through the right amount of preparation, you minimize the risk of one day coming to regret the giant step of emigration. At the end of the day, emigration is a very different proposition to visiting a country on vacation.
The labor market, residential market, cost of living, population density, taxation, criminality, natural catastrophes, nuclear safety, cultural facilities, immigration conditions, language and of course climate: all of these are important factors and it serves you well to set some priorities. The first question is to decide upon the country in which you wish to spend your future. You may like to emigrate to the USA to live out the American Dream? Or are you interested in emigrating to Australia, the land where kangaroos and koalas say ‘goodnight’ to you? Then again, you may wish to emigrate to Spain to enjoy restorative siestas and hot fiestas?
No matter where your future path may take you, when you decide to emigrate, you should obtain as much information as possible about your chosen country and about the customs of its indigenous population, and ideally you should also acquire a basic working knowledge of the language. Then again, the required ‘red tape’ needs to be handled professionally before you actually leave your native country. That means that important documents such as work testimonials, certificates & co. not only need to be translated into the language of the destination country, but also need to be certified. Many foreign government bodies demand not only that the signature be authenticated but that documents are certified at an even higher level to prove that they are genuine.
It is even more strongly advisable to obtain what are known as apostilles, a special kind of superordinate certification: an apostille guarantees that the document can be accepted in the intended destination country without further authentication by the diplomatic or consular representative office.
