Frontalier / quasi-resident

Dear all, I am new here, have searched the forum first but to not much avail, so am asking a separate question.

We have got a mortgage for purchase of property in France for primary residence. I am a non-EU with carte de legitimation in Geneva, my husband is EU with Ci permit. We both work in Geneva. Question: will that be possible for us to receive the quasi-resident status in Geneva? Will I have to return my carte and he - his Ci permit? Am feeling totally lost in bureaucracy and need an idiot-proof answer...

Re: Frontalier / quasi-resident

If the carte de legitimation was issued by the Swiss government, please note this:

"To be granted a legitimation card, members of the staff of:
embassies in Bern must reside in the City of Bern or within a maximum distance of 40km from the Federal capital;
consular posts headed by a career consular representative must reside in the consular district."

https://www.eda.admin.ch/eda/en/home...itimation.html

France would not seem to be a consular district for Geneva.

If you are indeed looking for a "idiot-proof answer", would suggest you contact an immigration attorney. This is, after all, just a general message board.

Re: Frontalier / quasi-resident

Thanks a lot for your answer.
In fact, the whole thing turned out to be easier then I though - I simply went to talk to our HR And no, I don't have to return my card. Tried to remove my post later, but has not found a mean to. Will try through reporting it.
