“The UK and Switzerland have secured a far-reaching agreement on services that maintains high quality access for UK service suppliers to the Swiss market … The UK-Switzerland Services Mobility Agreement will allow UK professionals and other service workers to continue travelling freely to Switzerland and work visa-free for up to 90 days a year,” the UK Department of International Trade said in a statement.
The deal is said to be supporting all key areas of the UK economy, such as finance, the tech sector and creative industries.
“The agreement builds on the existing UK-Switzerland trade deal and will enter into force from 1 January 2021,” the government added.

Britain officially left the European Union in January 2020. The Withdrawal Agreement, signed on 31 January, includes a one-year transition phase that allows Britain to operate as a member of the Union. The UK and the European Union are supposed to come to an agreement before the Brexit transition period expires on the 31st of December as Boris Johnson refused to prolong it last year. The negotiators haven’t come to an agreement yet.
