Persönliches Gesuch

Hi Everyone,

Today I went to the Migrations office in Bern to apply for a change of canton and the lady at the office gave me a list of documents that I need to bring with me.

So, basic stuff is needed, like extract from the criminal records, debt office, etc... but I don't understand what is: "Persönliches Gesuch".

As I understood it is my letter to them with the explanation why I want to change the canton?

Anyone had experience with this?

Re: Persönliches Gesuch

It translates as "Personal Application"

They want a photo of you, yes? And they want to see that you match the photo.

So you should go back to Berne yourself, with all the required documents.

Re: Persönliches Gesuch

I assume you are a Non-EU national. What type of residence permit do you hold and to which Canton are you planning to move to ?

Re: Persönliches Gesuch

I assume they want to know why you want to move. After all with a tied non-EU permit you're supposed to live in the same canton as your workplace is situated in. It's part of the conditions of having it. You'll need a really good reason why you should be allowed to move to another canton.

Re: Persönliches Gesuch

If your permit isn't tied to your current employer it should just be a matter of showing the Bern office your new employment contract.

If your permit is tied to your current employer then my understanding is that both cantons have to approve the change of employment. So not only do you need Bern's approval, but Basel's as well.

Re: Persönliches Gesuch

Who said that my permit is tied to employer?

As I wrote earlier, they want "Persönliches Gesuch" (I have all other documents) and I'm asking if someone has an example of it...

Best regards

Re: Persönliches Gesuch

I assume you will reside in the City of Bern. The "Gesuch" the authorities are looking for is a letter written and signed by yourself (no form or specified format) explaining your motivation to move (which obviously is the change of job location).
