I just arrived in Switzerland 6 days ago and I am trying to register before beginning my new job on July 1st. I have a signed rent contract for a place in Effretikon all ready to go, but I won't be moving in there until August 1st. I am currently staying in my new supervisor's apartment, who is on vacation all of June and July, but this was agreed upon via a skype call and nothing official was signed. Now the question is, where do I register?
I went to the Winterthur einwohnerkontrolle to register yesterday, but when they figured out that I am only staying in Winterthur for 7 weeks and only have a rent contract for a place in Effretikon, they told me that they couldn't register me for Winterthur; you need to be staying at least 3 months in a place in order to need to register there. And then they told me to go register in Effretikon instead within the 14 days of my arrival in Switzerland.
Ok. Makes sense.
So today I went to the Effretikon einwohnerkontrolle, but there they said that they can't register me until I actually move in on August 1st and that I can either register in Winterthur (which will be difficult without any documentation showing that I am staying there) or just wait until August to register for Effretikon when I actually move there. However, I would like to be registered and have a bank account set up before I start working on July 1st.
So long story short: I can't register in Winterthur due to my short stay and lack of proper documentation; I can't register in Effretikon until I actually move there in August; I should be registered somewhere before I start working on July 1. What should I do?
