Many of the questions we received from readers have to do with issues we've reported on in the past. Here's a selection of those questions, with answers from our coverage:

How does the Swiss healthcare system work? This section of our "Switzerland: How To"external link guide to the country outlines the health insurance system. Also stay tuned for a chance to submit more questions on this topic to help drive our future coverage.

Please tell me about the education system in Switzerland. Here is a collection external linkof our stories on the topic.

Is it true that until the end of 2017 those who have a Swiss grandparent or great-grandparent can apply for Swiss citizenship? This is partially true; those with Swiss grandparents can apply until the end of the year, after that the law changes and becomes stricter. Here is everything you need to know on the issue.

How much help is given to Swiss abroad who want to return to Switzerland? This question was so popular, we put it up for a vote (above) even though we have covered the topic in the past. Generally, there is minimal help available through a special fund run by the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad.

What is the process of getting a job like in Switzerland? Also a popular question. Here is our detailed explanation, also part of the "Switzerland: How To" collection.external link
