Re: UK marriage registration in Bern

Unfortunately in Bern, in order to update my Ausweis I first need to get a new passport. The marriage certificate wasn't enough.
I found the same to be true in Bern. When I moved here, I indicated on the registration paperwork what my name would be and gave them the marriage certificate. That's nice, they said, your permit is issued in the name on your passport. After your passport is changed, we'll re-issue the permit.

Same was true with my driver's license, btw. I was charged the full fee for the originals of both permit and DL, but when the new ones with the new name came there was a small fee for the permit. The DL change was free.
