Re: Citizenship with criminal record

View Post
Hi, looking for some advice please.

I am a UK citizen but am interested in relocating to Switzerland with a view to eventually become a citizen.

However I have a drink driving offence from 6 years ago.

How strict are the Government on not allowing citizenship due to a criminal record? Is it just a straight no or do they consider each case?

Many thanks

Depends where in Switzerland you end up applying for citizenship. The authorities in Valais (and maybe GraubŁnden) may be reluctant to grant citizenship to anyone without a drink driving conviction.
