Following on from the quarantine exemptions for selected industries announced earlier this week, there’s now further good news for UK business travellers with the unveiling of a new Services Mobility Agreement with Switzerland.
The wide-ranging deal will allow UK professionals and other service workers to travel freely to and from Switzerland, and to work there visa-free for up to 90 days a year. While building on the existing trade deal between the two countries – due to begin on 1st January 2021 – it will also help support trade across a wide spectrum of industries vital to the UK economy, including finance, consultancy, legal services, tech and the creative industries.
You can find out more about the Services Mobility Agreement on the UK government website.
