The Swiss authorities have proposed that the country permits all persons, including nationals of third countries, who obtain a master’s or a doctorate degree in an area that is dealing with a shortage of skilled workers to remain and work in Switzerland.

Such a proposal was made by the Federal Council of Switzerland on October 19, and the requirement to amend the Aliens and Integration Act has been based on a demand by the Parliament, which is expected to discuss the bill, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

According to the Federal Department of Justice and Police, the Parliament is demanding to make an exception to the quotas for workers from countries outside the European Union and outside the European Free Trade Association, with the motion “if Switzerland trains expensive specialists, they should also be able to work here”.
