Heimatschein/family card

Hello and help! I am a Swiss national but haven't really ever lived in Switzerland so don't have the official paper trail that a Swiss person would have. I am now registered with the Swiss Embassy in London and moving to Switzerland this summer. I have been told that I may need a Heimatschein and Family Card (?) as I have 2 children, any ideas how I go about getting these? Do I need to get these prior to moving or can I wait until I land? Also can't find what Heimatschein is in French as I my place of origin is actually in a French speaking Canton and we are moving to a german speaking one! any info and guidance gratefully received! thank you

Re: Heimatschein/family card

You have to order them from your Heimatort.

Re: Heimatschein/family card

Thank Tom sorry if this is incredibly basic but what department do I need to contact? Do you think they would send it to me in the UK? and will it take a long time?

Re: Heimatschein/family card

Just contact the offices of your Heimatort via email or phone.

They will tell you what to do, how much it costs, etc.

Re: Heimatschein/family card

This Wiki page explains the Heimatschein (acte d'origine/ déclaration de domicile) concept in German:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heimatschein

This Swiss government website explains where to order an acte d'origine. Change the page to French as needed:
