It is difficult, if not impossible, to find accommodation from abroad. On the one hand, it is better to see the object with his own eyes and on the other hand, the lessor (or the sub-lessor in the context of a sublease) will always want to meet the person who is supposed to occupy his accommodation.
To be able to personally visit the accommodation that you will rent during your stay, you will have to find accommodation as soon as you arrive!
If you have a job or an internship position with an international organization, a consulate, a permanent mission or an NGO registered with the State of Geneva and you are looking for an apartment or a room to rent :
Be extremely suspicious of tempting accommodation offers, often with supporting photos, asking you to pay an advance to visit or reserve a property. Do not make any money transfers before you have been able to visit the property and draw up a proper lease agreement.
