Working in Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is a particularly attractive place to work and offers more job opportunities than it has residents. Over half of all employees commute from abroad to work in Liechtenstein. This is because Liechtenstein’s industry and economy provide interesting prospects and numerous qualified job positions.

The economy of Liechtenstein is highly diversified. The country has both an internationally competitive industry and a strong services sector. The unemployment rate in Liechtenstein has remained at a very low level for years, and the economy continues to grow steadily. As a result, the Liechtenstein economy relies on cross-border commuters from abroad. Different regulations apply for obtaining a residence permit for employees without a residence in Liechtenstein.

Liechtenstein does not have a culture of strikes, and the employer and employee associations maintain a good social partnership.
