May 23, 2020 | Geneva

Where to go after borders open after COVI19 quarantine? We had a talk with expats living in Geneva what are they going to do after 15th June.

As a diplomatic center Geneva is the most expat populated city in Switzerland. COVID19 quarantine made them stay at home without any sign of being in contact with family and friends living abroad.  

SUISSEPIC decided to ask about summer vacations plans in one of the biggest expat communities in Switzerland. 

The top answer is to go to the supermarket Carrefour which is located in Ferney-Voltaire a small French village which borders with a Swiss Geneva, a favorite place for many to buy food   

More than 80 expats are going to visit it: “France – Carrefour” .

Adeline said that butcher’s was also on the list because “the meat was damn expensive”.

Among other destinations they name:

  • Montenegro
  • Madagascar
  • Uzbekistan
  • USA
  • Morocco
  • Alaska
  • Sweden
  • Canada
  • Italy
  • Nigeria
  • Russia
  • And neighboring Swiss cities.
