Swiss Review UK Pages
APRIL 2021 ISSUE
It is now urgent for all the Swiss citizens registered to the Embassy to cast their vote for the local candidates to the Parliament of the Council of the Swiss abroad.
In this issue, you will find the candidates’ profiles and useful information to support your choice. Eight people have stood up to take on this significant role. Two of them, Franz Muheim and Loredana Guetg-Wyatt, have already been active representatives to the OSA parliament, while for the other five candidates, this is the first election.
This year, the Swiss community in the UK has the opportunity to vote online for their OSA Delegates. We are one of the first communities of Swiss abroad to enjoy this privilege. This great chance has been made possible thanks to the initiative of Ané-Mari Peter, FOSSUK’s secretary, and her digital and print agency on-IDLE. The procedure is smart and easy. Postal votes of course remain eligible, with voting slips published in this issue of the Swiss Review.
Reminder – Your residence status after Brexit: what you need to do before the 30 June deadline. The final deadline for registering for settled or pre-settled status under the UK’s EU Settlement Scheme is fast approaching. For further information on the Scheme, on how to apply and where to get help, please visit the UK government website or the Brexit FAQ on the Embassy’s website: www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families www.eda.admin.ch/london/brexit
Swiss in the UK Survey: Not only is it time to vote for your UK CSA (Council of the Swiss Abroad) Delegates to represent your views, concerns and successes for the next four years, we are also conducting a survey to hear from you first hand (it’ll only take 5 minutes), and let us know how best to serve and address your issues and experiences. Only by taking part can we fashion our agendas – from the Embassy to Swiss Clubs to Delegate priorities. We'll publish the results and feedback on the actions taken on the priorities as set by you, the Swiss community.
Have a tale to tell or a news titbit?
Please send any news of your local Swiss club activities urgently to the editor for a chance to feature in the next issue. Gioia Palmieri is always delighted to hear about events held, milestones reached or inspirational Swiss living in the UK & Ireland.

The magazine for the Swiss Abroad appears five times a year and provides information about what is happening at home and the activities of Swiss associations abroad.

It is also possible to check this with the Helpline FDFA who is available around the clock 365 days a year.
- You can catch up on any editions missed in the Archive section in the Editions menu on the official Swiss Review website.
- If you wish to change the form of delivery of “Swiss Review” for yourself (from online to paper, or vice versa), you can do so via the FDFA's website. Please note that the change can only be made by persons registered as the head of the household, i.e. those to whom “Swiss Review” is currently addressed.
- Please contact your Swiss representation directly about all future matters concerning “Swiss Review”. The editorial team at “Swiss Review” does not have access to your address or administrative details.
- To ensure that delivery runs smoothly, please inform your embassy or consulate immediately of any change of address (postal or e-mail).
