Once a year in August, the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA) organises a congress for Swiss citizen living all around the world. The event has become a popular opportunity to meet and network for all those, who are interested in the international mobility of the "Fifth Switzerland". The varying themes are picked to match the interests and expectations of this audience.

Remember to get in touch with your UK Delegates to raise pressing issues affecting you, from bank accounts to eVoting.

Every year a different region of Switzerland hosts the congress. During the event up to 400 participants meet compatriots from around the world, listen to exciting speeches, inform themselves about the current news in Switzerland, talk about their own experiences and get to know interesting personalities from Swiss economy and politics.

Thanks to a varied social program including sightseeing and excursions across the host region, the participation in this event promises a unique experience.

During the Congress, all speeches and sessions are held in German or French.
Join us at the Congress of the Swiss Abroad: 20–22 August 2021.
