You’ll be able to apply once you’re registered to live in Switzerland. Alternatively, simply download the bank’s app and follow the instructions. You can confirm your personal details via a video call.

That way you can get on with the more fun business of settling into your new life. Read on for our Swiss banking tips compiled in partnership with UBS.
