Re: I am pregnant – What to expect when expecting in Switzerland

I have just contacted the city chamber to get clarification on the document requirements and I think it could be helpful to update the following:

IMPORTANT: NO DOCUMENT MAY BE OLDER THAN 6 MONTHS. This can create some trouble with people in possession of a birth certificate without a date. Again, call the city chamber of the place you are thinking of giving birth in and ask – they are usually quite nice.
We have been advised that any birth certificate / marriage certificate issued outside of the EU (not sure about within the EU) needs an Apostille. This can be done by the country that issued the document and basically assures that this document is legit.

Another thing we've been told is that we need to provide residence confirmations from our Kreisbüro (or Stadthaus) where you are registered. These need to be recent aswell.

Got to love bureaucracy
