IMPACT — MEDIUM
The governments of Switzerland and the U.K. have extended their Services Mobility Agreement until January 2026.
Background: Having provisionally been in effect since Jan. 1, 2021, the SMA maintains ease of access for service providers following the end of the free movement of persons between Switzerland and the U.K. following the U.K.’s withdrawal from the EU. It regulates market access and temporary stays for service providers, such as business consultants, IT experts and engineers.
BAL Analysis: The extension of the SMA between the U.K. and Switzerland is positive news, as it will allow certain professionals and other services workers to continue traveling freely between the two countries to work without work permit approval for up to 90 days a year. This extension gives businesses flexibility when conducting business or providing services between Switzerland and the United Kingdom without complications and delays that would be applicable if an individual required a work permit in either country.
