From europcar.co.uk:



UK- Lausanne return will be maybe 1400 miles. Plus there's an extra for taking out outside the UK.
I think that is my point - usually they will calculate the complete mileage beforehand and give you a price based on that. That's what europcar did with me anyway. It is entirely possible it has changed though in the 2 years since I came here...

I, however, am also and what you say is, again, irrelevant for a UK national who's moving here. What you had to do regarding your marriage for residency in Lichenstein isn't the same. All the OP needs to do is move here with her family and then go to their commune admin office and register. They'll need the husband's work contract, a copy of their rental contract, passports birth certificates and marriage certificate and passport photos. They'll fill in the necessary forms and then they just wait for the permits to be issued.

Switzerland and Lichtenstein have no border checks because they're part of the Schengen Agreement.

For someone who's only just joined the forum you seem to think you know more about living and working in Switzerland than those of us who have been here for years.

miniMia, it's part of the Swiss dog laws that a dog must be registered with a vet within 10 days of arrival so the vet can check them over and put their details into the ANIS database.

Why do you need to register your dog at a vet? I didn't do that. She was registered with us the same time we registered at the commune.

The dog class thing seems to be hit or miss here as well. They may require you to get one they may not.
Dogs in Swiss as far as I know have to be microchipped, and registered with gemeinde polizei - and possibly also subject of taxations. When I took my dog to vet first time they automatically registered dog with police for me - I had to do nothing.

Mate, I've lived and worked here 9 years, I've bought a house here, I hold a C permit, My son goes to local school here. Many members of this forum have met me in the flesh, quite a few have stayed in my house.

So

Who the hell are you????
9 years? That's a long time. Means your info is very outdated. I on the other hand have been here 2 yrs, have recent knowledge of the process, am married to someone who has been here her whole life, has parents who have lived here 40 years and all of them are now laughing at your stupidity.

You really have no clue do you?? how many permits do you think I've had and had to renew? 3 years of L permits, renewing every 6 months, 1 B permit and now a C, I'll leave it to you to work out from that when I got my C, if simple maths isn't beyond you too.

Re: Is this salary sufficient for a move to Switzerland?

This thread is an absolute train wreck.

I feel bad for anyone that tries to trawl through it to find some useful information.

Luckily MaybeeSkint is sensible enough to have left it long ago.

Re: Is this salary sufficient for a move to Switzerland?

I REALLY hope the OP isn't reading it, a couple of trolls have made something as simple as registering here look like an entry exam for mensa.

Re: Is this salary sufficient for a move to Switzerland?

I came to Switzerland 5 months ago, so do I win the "UK citizen with most recent experience of registering" pissing contest?

Ah. OK, thanks for that. My dog was a "returnee". So she was already registered with ANIS. Though now that you bring it up, I should make sure they have my new phone number. What is Precious got lost?!

Re: Is this salary sufficient for a move to Switzerland?

when I got here a colleague helped me with all the advice about registering etc, I am sure the school will help the OP's husband. Good luck OP!

I appreciate the thread's been lively but it has kept me entertained on a dull Friday afternoon!

Longer than I've been a member of this forum. And my info comes from both the www.ch.ch and www.bfm.admin.ch sites when I advise people. Perhaps you should read through them. Maybe start with the video you see here:

https://www.ch.ch/en/foreign-nationals-in-switzerland/

No mention of needing visas or applying at Swiss embassies in EU/EFTA countries for residence permits. I wonder why?

I reiterate that marrying a Lichenstein national and moving there is nothing like a UK family moving to Switzerland. Getting married in Switzerland though is probably very similar with the need for documents to be notarized/translated, etc.

lucy_who, definitely.

miniMia, again definitely. How will they return your baby pooch to you if they don't have her mom's telephone number!

Re: Is this salary sufficient for a move to Switzerland?

Anyway. I assume the OP must have been answered by now (there's no way I'm reading through this guff), and the rest is just some pissing contest.

So. G'night folks.
