Re: What's Up with the "Swiss House Police"?

My husband is a Swiss citizen whom was born in Ticino. I recently put in for a renewal of my B Permit (now at the 5th year). So in my humble opinion "All is Good", just waiting on the completion of the paperwork. Well, don't speak too soon, because at 8:15AM we heard a knocking at the door. When we answered it was "Surprise Inspection" by the equivalent of the Police of our home. It was explained that this was connected to my renewal request for the B Permit. Well anyway, to make a long story shorter, we were insulted on several occasions. They criticised our lighting choices because we do not like overhead lighting (to bright for our purposes). They actually asked us to open our refrigerator and wanted to see inside of our clothing closets. Some of the questions they asked were extremely invasive. Can anyone here give me an idea of what's up with these arses?



These 'arses' as you call them, were most probably officials from the Femdenpolizei acting upon your renewal request. It might be that there were doubts of one kind or another in regards to your marriage.


The things they did when checking the wardrobe and fridge, was to see whether you really live at this address and are married.


And I am pretty certain that the questions you thought to be invasive, were to ascertain that your marriage is not a sham (to get a residental permit).


How suspicions arised I don't know either, but this looks to me as a standard procedure check-up of the Local Fremdenpolizei/Migrationsamt.
