I don't really have an official document-which is weird, right? What I have is more like a form letter, without a stamp or anything. I might actually need to get a "family book" from my husband's home town, which is not in Zürich. I'll update when I've figured it out.
Do you not get a certificate of Naturalisation??

Re: Facilitated Naturalization-ZH

Nope, no certificate. I only got letters stating that the process had gone through-one federal and one from Zurich.

Re: Facilitated Naturalization-ZH

UPDATE!!!

I finally got a letter from my local Kreisburo...saying...please send a letter to your Heimatort (home town) to get a copy of my Heimatschein (I guess that's my equivalent of a naturalization certificate?) sent to me. I am supposed to then bring that in to get my Ausstellung der Meldebestätigung (registration papers) updated.

Woo-hoo?

I am also going through facilitated naturalization in Zurich, and here is my timeline so far:

December 2013: submitted document package (married five years, living in Switzerland for seven years)

January-May 2014: I was asked for several additional documents, detailing work history and confirming that I was in a stable marriage and had no lawsuits pending.

July 2014: police visit (8:00 on July 5th, after a 4th of July BBQ)...

September 2014: I was asked to resend documents stating that I am in a stable relationship (no separation proceedings) and have no pending lawsuits. Since I sent these early in the process, I suspect that I am near the end. We will see...

As far as I know, no references have been contacted.

Why would they ask you to resend the same documents twice???

I suppose since 9 months had passed since the initial paperwork, they wanted reassurance about the marriage, job, and debt/legal situations being the same. Circumstances can change.

Ah, yes. True . I just thought it was a stupid delay for 6 months and then ask for the same papers again to waste time and energy.

Facilitated Naturalization-ZH - after positive decision?

Hello,

I received a postive decision of naturalization back in November last year and since than I haven't heard from anyone. I applied in Zurich, the origin place of my husband is Le Locle and in November we moved to Basel Land. I am wondering if something got lost on the way. This week I received papers to vote for the first time, so I thought now I could get an appointment for the passport. However they ask to bring:

- Einbürgerungsurteil (Landratsbeschluss)
- Rechtskraftmitteilung erleichterte Einbürgerung (von Bundesamt für Migration BFM)

I don't have the first one, should I receive it by mail from Zurich?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: Facilitated Naturalization-ZH

Hello again,

Today we received a letter from Bündesamt für Migration BMF requesting our signatures on regards to having no legal problems or planning diveroce.

I will send the forms today and wonder (hence my post here) what step in the process am in, how many more steps should come after this letter?

(as reported before, my employe was already contacted, i had presented myself some extra documents requested by the Gemeinde, it's been already 6 months sharp and we are in kanton AG)

Thanks in advance for any word on this!

Update: I got a notice for 750 CHF letter two days ago and picked it up yesterday, so it was nearly exactly three months after the police visit and one month after I was asked for the last round of documents.

Now, unless Kanton Zurich realises their imminent mistake, I'm Swiss in two months (or less )
I just got this letter today. I'm in kanton (AG).

As I have read, after paying then it might be just a question of waiting to see if the local Gemeinde has observations to the process. Else i'm guessing I should, in about a month from now, be receiving a letter about family book updating?

Thanks in advance for any hint.

Re: Facilitated Naturalization-ZH

I got a letter from the city of Zurich saying that they agreed (still no family book) about one month after the federal decision. Then, about another month later the Kreisburo (which is the local registration office) asked me to contact my new home town and send the family book to Zurich. I called, it was sent (30 CHF, of course).

Apparently, Zurich holds the family book until I deregister.

I still hold neither a Swiss passport nor a Swiss ID card, since I don't really need one at this point. I will probably get the passport before I leave.

Oh, and I finally got the invitation to the new Swiss citizen's event in Zurich. Music! Apero! Woo hoo!

Re: Facilitated Naturalization-ZH

ohh thanks for replying so quick.


I assume then we are somehow in and advance stage of the process. Seems then no no police visit.

We have no problems here in this little town i live and a very strong recommendation link in case they want to ask a local about our family.

I'm hoping we then get the letters you mention and in about 2 months be on the moment of family book updating.

Thanks again o/

I saw your post on my FN thread in Aargau. I didn't get a police visit. I spoke to someone in the geminde about this and he said that its not always necessary. I know personally a lot of people who work in our geminate, and i had very good references so there wasn't a need to investigate me or our marriage.... I guess it depends on the situation.

Re: Facilitated Naturalization-ZH

Just for others to determine the time frame that is taking the whole process (at least in kanton AG).

Started on September 2014.

Today I got the second letter. A confirmation from the kanton where the family ties are rooted. Grabunden. They say all is ok.
As swiss_in_training has mentioned before, there's no stamp or certificate.. just a letter stating the article of the law and simply making it official.

I hope to receive instructions as to what is next regarding the family book and if I can request an ID..

But so far seems like the process is sort of over(?). Although I need to see a plastic with my picture on it to believe it.

I will be waiting for a couple of weeks hoping they send me new letter with instructions about what is next paperwise.

Re: Facilitated Naturalization-ZH

Hello everyone
As a non-EU citizen, I have made application for facilitated naturalization last year after having lived in Switzerland for over 8 years and been married for over 3 years.
So far, the process has been painfully slow and it has been more than 1 year since my application. I have not heard back anything from the ZH cantonal authorities. Except that they had asked for a few documents about my taxes and background in May, there was no news and hence no interviews nor police visits. Is this normal? Would it be ok if I pester them with inquiries or would it only cause my application to be pushed further back in the waiting line? I know people who completed the whole process between 8-10 months and the fact that mine still lingers in the air is quite unnerving.
