Switzerland has a dual system for the admission of foreign workers. Gainfully employed nationals from the EU-27/EFTA States can benefit from agreements on the free movement of persons. Only a limited number of management level employees, specialists and other qualified employees are admitted from all other countries.

From 1 July 2014, Croatian nationals are subject to separate quotas under the provisions of the Foreign Nationals Act (FNA).
