No, as ASitUS says, it can be as few as 5 years with good integration. If you've been here at least 5 years, are well integrated, have a language certificate, have a job or sufficient means to support yourself and are not a criminal, you can apply now.

The only reason i want to work with a firearm is because i used to be a private bodyguard, it gets sticky at times, and a firearm is a good tool in those situations, and i feel comfortable with it.
jesus. no wonder they have restrictions. just a different way of thinking....

no security guards have guns in the UK - not even majority of police. wonder if that makes it a far more dangerous place than bosnia????

Re: Job as security/bodyguard in switzerland

i'd be pretty wary about employing a security guard who lists his interests as 'shooting guns'....

I can't speak for Swiss regulations with respect to carrying a firearm for professional purposes. However, with respect to local gun laws, unfortunately certain nationalities are excluded to own a firearm. Either way, you will need a C-permit to go out and buy a gun (any gun, even the ones on pressured air).
This is not correct.

Hans, you should join us shooting sometimes - we are a group of English speakers who regularly (in non-corona times) shoots.


I personally own 9 guns, ranging from .22 to 7.62. Pistols, revolvers, snipers, assault rifles and shotguns.

I am on a B-permit (UK national).


Sadly, nationals from Bosnia need a special permit to even shoot a gun they dont own at a range.

Re: Job as security/bodyguard in switzerland

Where can i find or get this special permit, i think my history shows that I only owned firearms for professional use and for having fun at the range, Because this special permit could possibly allow me to take bodyguard courses.

Hey...

Do a favor for yourself and stay far away from guns and anything related to security given your country...

Before anyone telling that Iím being racist, thereís a lot of hard feelings for what happened on the 90s and I would recommend you to do
Something else.

Re: Job as security/bodyguard in switzerland

Do you have to provide your own gun or does the company give you one? I'd definitely prefer something old school, like a 1911, rather than some plastic-fantastic, oh-no-I-just-shot-myself-in-the-leg, striker-fired thing.

What about pistol whipping? Is that required? A 1911 would, for sure, be better for that.

Re: Job as security/bodyguard in switzerland

Why not concentrate on jobs you can get without having a gun? It seems to be very difficult to get one with your nationality, however, plenty of jobs around where you donīt need one.

Security guards in Switzerland normally don't get guns.

Would it be possible to work abroad as a bodyguard as i still have connections in Bosnia/Croatia and Italy, and not get into legal trouble in switzerland?
...in Switzerland, it doesnít get ďstickyď...as you put it.

Re: Job as security/bodyguard in switzerland

My stepson did peace-keeping in Bosnia and Kosovo, and got a gun both times (normally Swiss peace-keepers don't get guns). In addition to good pay, it fulfilled his Swiss military obligations.

Are you saying that the exclusion has to do with the war? In that case, I am surprised we do not see Syria, Irak, Iran and Afghanistan in the list. I would also add United States based on their bad track record.

Can someone explain the reasoning behind the exclusion?
