Swiss promise 3500 work permits to Brits in case of ‘no deal’ Brexit

Switzerland will introduce a quota system allowing Britons to come and work in the country in the event Britain crashes out of the EU without an exit deal.

Under the system 3,500 British citizens coming to Switzerland for the first time will be allowed to work, the government in Bern said on Wednesday.

The cap for residence permits will be set at 2,100, with an additional 1,400 short-stay permits allowed.

The quota, which will apply from March 30 to December 31, replaces the current Agreement of Free Movement of Persons between Switzerland and Britain which runs out March 30.
