Information regarding Croatian nationals

On the 1st of July 2013, Croatia has joined the European Union (EU). The extension of the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons to Croatia was negotiated under a new Protocol III.

Protocol III entered into force on the 1st of January 2017. As from that date, Croatian nationals benefit from the free movement of persons.

However, they will be subject to specific restrictions on access to the Swiss labor market (priority of workers in Switzerland and compliance with pay and working conditions).
