Afaik in Switzerland the plates are linked to the owner, not to the car
Well, that is consistent with my understanding as expressed in my earlier posts. Plates go with the person and not the vehicle.

To be more specific -- my partner (civil partnership, not a marriage, so a further complication under Swiss law) is the current owner of the vehicle. She rarely uses the car whereas I use it constantly, including for cross-border travel. We live in the same apartment.

All things considered, and rather than carrying a letter of permission from my partner for cross-border travel, I wish to take on the ownership and maintenance of the vehicle. But if I have to take on new plates, that means further rounds of corre$pondence with the régie and the Fondations des Parkings for an atte$tation to prove the residential address to justify a new parking macaron for the district, with street parking fees in the interim.
