Effect of Liechtenstein citizenship
Liechtenstein citizens are treated as equal with Swiss citizens in Switzerland[clarification needed] and are permitted to take up residence in the European Union and EEA member states in addition to Liechtenstein (which is a member of the EEA).
Citizens of the European Economic Area (the European Union plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland) enjoy the freedom to travel and work in any European Union country without a visa, although transitory dispositions[clarification needed] may restrict the rights of citizens of new member states to work in other countries. The same rights are also accorded to citizens of Switzerland although they remain separate from the EEA.[why?]
In 2016, Liechtenstein citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 164 countries and territories, ranking the Liechtenstein passport 12th in the world according to the Visa Restrictions Index.
