Financial proof for residence permit
For your stay in Switzerland, you need at least CHF 1,500 a month for accommodation and food.
It is difficult to find part-time jobs. As a non-Swiss student you are allowed to work a maximum of 15 hours a week. Non-EU/EFTA may only start working in Switzerland after having lived in the country for six months. Special transitory measures are applied on Croatian nationals.
To apply for a residence permit, you require financial proof confirming that you will be able to pay the minimum living expenses of CHF 1,500 a month (a bank statement from your bank account or a written guarantee from a person supporting you with CHF 1,500 a month with bank statement and a copy of the person's passport).
