Re: Vote on allowing easier citizenship for third generation

What's the typical cost of a "standard" naturalisation anyway?
(standard = grownup with 12 years residency, adjusted for school years if applicable)

This member (presumably from Richterswil, Zürich) says it cost him/her "1000 for the Gemeinde, 500 for the canton, 100 for Bern and 15 for the post office" with no additional costs expected. Of course charges by Kanton and Gemeinde will differ, but by how much?

Those who got naturalised while cost still depended on income (no idea until when this applied) please clearly mark it to avoid confusion (if you think it's worth posting even though it no longer has much relevance).
The cost varies considerably. This article written in 2015 should give you an idea:

However, generally under 25s seem to already pay less.

Something else to consider in this debate. Naturalisation is about to become more difficult (from sometime early this year), as will holding a C permit and retaining a C permit.

edit: I honestly feel like I dodged a bullet getting my citizenship last month.
