Arriving in commune

Hi,
We moved into Switzerland (from France) 2 weeks ago. Our B permits arrive next week and we've sorted all our insurances. I feel like I read somewhere we're supposed to go to the Mairie and kind of declare our presence. Does anyone know anything about that? Or is the permit and other paperwork all we need to do?
Thanks.

Re: Arriving in commune

Yes, you're supposed to register within 14 days of your arrival, though you've sort of done that by getting your permits organised. Your commune wants to know you live there because they'll get a portion of your taxes of course. They'll also have lots of rules and regulations they'll want you to learn about so you can live here like a good Swiss citizen does.

Seriously, yes they do want to know (for the tax side), but also they'll want to know that you've got your health insurance sorted, otherwise they'll try and put you on their own health insurance scheme which may be more expensive than yours. It's always worth making yourself known to your commune admin office.

Thanks for this. I'll go tomorrow. Do I need to take any papers? Our permits haven't arrived yet, but we called and there is no problem with them being approved. Its just a matter of time.

Details are here:

and here in English:

Your employment contract and rental contract if you have one already would also be needed. Plus the health insurance if you have that as well so they know you're covered. If you haven't got that yet, you have 3 months from your arrival to sort it out before they'll put you on their default policy. When you do get it sorted, just pop down to the admin office and show them the policy for their records.
