After almost 3 years in Switzerland, my fellow American partner and myself are high-tailing it to England for a new job. We are so bummed to leave but excited/apprehensive/stressed for our new home!
I also want to thank you all for how helpful this forum is. Strangely enough I can't find an equivalent for the UK! Even though we weren't as active as we should have been, I've been so grateful to peruse these forums for advice.
Speaking of, I have some questions about leaving that I couldn't find on the forum. I read the entire sticky, I promise!
Background: I just de-registered this week, but our leaving situation is a bit funny
We leave in ~3 weeks for the US to get married, and when we return a couple weeks later in September, I will enter as a tourist and then the next day leave to the UK. We booked these tickets long ago and it was too expensive to change them from Zurich to London, and I was told by the border control it should be just fine.
My soon-to-be husband, on the other hand, will need to stay at least a couple of weeks longer in Switzerland. He has his own B permit, not connected to mine, and this will be fine.
My questions concern my de-reigstration: is it possible to send the de-registration confirmation to my insurance etc. AFTER I have left?
This is partly because the bank account and cell phone are in my name, and Mr. vrabbit will need those things while he's still here. I don't want to bother with changing names and the hassle that would be just for a few weeks.
Another thing is that if I cancel my insurance when I leave I will technically be without for the time we are in the US until I reach the UK, so that could be bad
It would be convenient to also send the de-registration to them after I have left.
Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!
