Re: Commune naturalisation interview...done

Here is a reminder of our process:

- Nov 2009: applied for all family (paid 200chf for admin fees)
- Feb- 2010: interview by cantonal office for naturalization
- May 2010: interview at the Gemeinde/Commune
- Sept 2010: ok from Confederation and Canton (paid 150chf).
- Dec 2010 ; expected Grand conseil interview by commission of naturalization (paid 1120 chf)
- March 2011: final decision by Grand conseil.
So we had our last interview by the Cantonal Parliament (grand conseil) naturalization commission. It was very formal and very short (15min). The whole interview was focused on our knowledge of federal & cantonal & communal political system/structure (executive, legislative). It's like very fast quizz question game- We can be proud to have 100% right answers. I liked the closing of the interview when the guy said: "So you'll wait 3 months for the Grand Conseil vote on your naturalization. But you really don't have to worry (big smile)"

All in all, it was quite a simple process, with simple/basic questions. I imagined that they'd ask tougher questions. We were clearly over-prepared. From application to last interview it lasted 12 months. The final vote will happen in March 2011 so the whole process lasts 15-16 months. The total cost will come under 2000chf with all fees (2adults + 2kids born in CH).
