Citizens of EU/EFTA countries 

Citizens of EU/EFTA countries do not need a visa, and the Centre secures the necessary work permit.

Citizens of non-EU/EFTA countries 

For citizens of non-EU/EFTA countries, the visa process is more complicated but with a high chance of successful visa application. If you don't have an EU/EFTA passport, you have to be under 35 years old at the time of your work period, as that is the age limit for the visas we can receive. The Centre secures the necessary work permit.

The Centre does not cover the visa fees of your local embassy involved in the process.

Citizens of non-EU/EFTA countries 

For citizens of non-EU/EFTA countries who have not been Staff at KISC before, we can apply for a 4-month visa, for 4-month contracts. The applicant needs to be under 35 years old for the whole duration of the contract. $

For citizens of non-EU/EFTA countries who have been Short Term or Long Term Staff at KISC before, there is usually a very low probability of getting another visa. If the non-EU/EFTA applicant is suitable for the role and fulfils specific requirements set by the Swiss authorities, there is a possibility to get a visa for a longer contract. The employment is dependent on securing the necessary special permission from the Swiss authorities.
