About us

The Organisation of the Swiss Abroad has represented the overall interests of Swiss nationals abroad in Switzerland since 1916, and is recognised by the authorities as the mouthpiece of the “Fifth Switzerland”.

We think of ourselves as a competence centre for all issues related to the mobility of our fellow citizens, as well as advice on legal questions, social security insurance and educational matters. The international mobility of Swiss citizens is increasing every year, as more and more decide to move abroad.

SwissCommunity also acts as a link between Swiss nationals abroad and their homeland. We keep our compatriots abroad up-to-date about what's happening in Switzerland and provide a wide range of services such as the annual Congress of the Swiss Abroad and the summer and winter camps for young Swiss nationals abroad.
