What happens if you fail to register at gemeinde?

One hour wasted in the queue today and had to leave. May not be able to register on time now. What are the consequences of non-/late- registration?

Re: What happens if you fail to register at gemeinde?

Doesn't matter - they will find you. I was out of country when my B-permit expired. Husband's HR Dept. said "No worries - do it as soon as you return." And I did. I received a letter today from a representative of the Polizei that I have been deemed a "suspect" and required to attend the appointment they set up for next week.

My flight back to the US leaves on Saturday. Thankfully, a few phone calls, one major translation and all is well. If I wasn't de-registering, a fine, I've been told, was imminent.

Re: What happens if you fail to register at gemeinde?

I was 3 or 6 months late, obviously I don't remember, but the fine was around 45 francs or so in Bern but the woman waived it for me.

But then again, there are those labour camps ....

25 Stutz when I forgot to change my address with the Einwohnerkontrolle, in ZH. As with you it was waved.

This must be the Basel-denial phase.

I heard you can choose between a 10000 CHF fine, 3 months in jail or live for 2 additional weeks in Basel.

I've had a few overlapping leases and gave them the actual day i moved in, which was after the start date usually. I've never been fined.
