Switzerland’s most international city awaits expats moving to Geneva. As the European headquarters of the United Nations, World Health Organization and several multinational corporations, the city of Geneva has an identity is diverse and cosmopolitan. Though the city’s official language is French, but expats are just as likely to hear its multilingual population speaking English, Spanish or German.
As in all Swiss cities the cost of living in Geneva is high, but benefits from excellent transport, healthcare and educational facilities. The city has a well-established network of international schools, but competition for places here is fierce because of the large expat community, and parents need to act fast to secure a spot for their children.
Another advantage is the city's location. Other European countries are in easy reach, making it a great destination from which to explore the continent. Expats may take some time to adapt, but the benefits of living in Geneva are difficult to ignore.
