Re: Changing middle and maiden name after marriage

If youíre not Swiss it had nothing to do with the Swiss. You would need to change your name with the US authorities, get a new passport, then take your passport & documentation and get a new permit etc in Switzerland.
I have since found out that this isnít really true. I changed my name to my married name with the US embassy and went to renew my Permis B with my new American passport. I was immediately told that unless I had also changed my name with the local …tat Civil office, I would be getting my new Permis B under my old name. So I still have to go through the swiss office and pay a small fortune to change my name. This could of course vary by canton.
