Switzerland to retain quotas for Croatian nationals in 2024
On 22 November 2023, the Swiss Federal Council announced that it will continue to implement quotas in 2024 for Croatian nationals who seek to obtain Swiss work or residence permits. The quota for 2024 will be the same as that for 2023. The Federal Council has now decided to extend the safeguard clause into 2024 due to the high demand for B and L Permits for Croatian nationals. The number of available B and L Permits for Croatian nationals will remain fixed at 1,204 and 1,053 for calendar year 2024. Croatian nationals who apply to obtain these permits will not be subject to a labor market test.
