Filipinos in Switzerland consist of migrants from the Philippines to Switzerland and their descendants. As early as 1975, Switzerland had 188 Philippine citizens living there. By 2005, that number had grown to 3,547.[2] From the 1970s until the 1990s, some Filipinas came to Switzerland as guest workers, primarily in the nursing sectors.[3] In the 1980s, some women came on 10-month work permits, officially to work as cabaret dancers; in reality, many were forced into prostitution.[4] Migration through marriage was another common path to Switzerland.[5] However, after 1992, those married to Swiss citizens no longer automatically acquired Swiss citizenship.[6] The trend of Philippine citizens coming to Switzerland on a tourist visa and then overstaying to find work began in the 1990s.[7]

In general, Filipinos tend not to have Swiss friends, aside from their work colleagues. Filipinos see the Swiss as introverted and feel it is difficult to form friendships with them; also, many Filipinos feel they do not speak German well enough to express themselves freely, and instead feel inhibited when speaking the language.[8] Filipino migrants also lack interest or involvement in Swiss politics.[9]
