Re: An Afghan family looking for asylum in Switzerland. I have a question.

Born with Swiss father, in Switzerland? But you're not Swiss yourself. That can only arise, I think, if your parents were not married and your father did not acknowledge you as his before you were 18.

Should an unmarried father be Swiss (and the mother a foreigner), the child can have Swiss citizenship as long as the father acknowledges paternity before the child turns legal age.

You do not have to have ever held a Swiss passport to be a Swiss citizen.

Your first step should be to talk to the Swiss embassy with as much documentation as you can muster.
