Do I have to pay a 3rd permit?

Hey there

So I have a question...
I moved from Porrentruy (Jura) to Wallisellen (Zurich) a month ago and when I got here I went to the gemeinde to ask for a new permit and all that. I guess I'll have it soon, and apparently I have to pay 70 francs again because I moved to a different canton.
As it happens I'm moving again next month or in October but it will probably be next month, God willing, and my question is if I'll have to pay 70 francs a third time just to change addresses. I'll remain in Zurich, so the canton is the same, but I probably won't be in Wallisellen anymore.. I'm not so sure how this works.

I think you do, yes.

Each time they have to modify details on your permit, you need to pay note that's only 50.- in our part though

OMG, I can't believe this :/
We shouldn't have to pay so much just because we have to move.. I mean moving to different cantons I get it, but I shouldn't have to pay it again since I'm staying in Zürich. Oh this country

Because they need to change the address on it.

Re: Do I have to pay a 3rd permit?

Yes, I get it.. but 70 francs each time someone needs to change adresses it's a bit too much :/ I didn't know I would have to move a second time and so soon... lucky me xD

Re: Do I have to pay a 3rd permit?

I think it depends on the type of permit. A paper permit requires a fee to change the address whereas the new card permits don't charge for address changes as it's not written on the card itself.

I didn't even know there was two types of permits... I have the paper permit. Now that I asked for a new one when I moved here, is it possible that they will give me the new card permit?

I was charged 100 CHF for changing address within the same Gemeinde with a card permit with no change to actual permit card.

Even though the address is not on the card, but as understood from authorities the admin fee is charged for informing and updating details with

- Migration Office
- Tax Office
- Gemeinde
- Road Transport Office (with No Vehicle only the Driving License)

Same is true of driving licenses and Swiss ID cards.

You moved from Porrentruy to Wallisellen and you haven't changed the location on your profile.
That would be 70F, thank you.

I didn't come for a good salary but I understand what you're saying and you're right.. this country works because people can live well and everyone has good salaries and that's why so many people keep coming here. Although I still think that some things (like this for instance) are absurd. And I may be wrong but I can't think otherwise.

Indeed, it is ridiculous. As for that low tax and high salary, amazing public transport system, clean and safe environments... ugh, what a NIGHTMARE.

That's because here people pay only for the services they actually use.

Why do you think that taxes are so much less here?

If you remain in Zurich city you will end up paying CHF 25.- for address change.
