Re: Can commune extend minimum residency in CH requirement for citizenship?

It is an old law, new law thing. Citizenship law for those not in the know.

Yes, Dübendorf has as of today a very high residency requirement. But not for much longer. With the new federal citizenship law comes a new cantonal citizenship law which leads to a new communal citizenship regulations. Not sure what exactly it will be in canton Zurich but from January 1st 2018 on the longest any commune in Switzerland can request is 5 years of residency.
