Re: Wants to get married, needs advice on how to do.

I'm not sure of the procedure to get married in France. If you get married in Switzerland, you sort your documentation in France and send it to Switzerland, your boyfriend will have to sort his documentation out in Switzerland. If he calls the Zivilstandsamt they will tell him what you both need.

Alternatively, go to Gibralter for a few days. All you need there is your passport & birth certificate, it's very simple and not as far away as Vegas!!

Good luck

Re: Wants to get married, needs advice on how to do.

Are you actually in Bern? Because a French carte de sejour permit doesn't allow you to live in Switzerland. If you want to live here then you should apply for a fiancee visa/permit at the Swiss Embassy in France.

If you are here without the proper permit then please move back to France while you sort things out. If you're found to be here illegally then it could have an adverse affect on your Swiss visa/permit application.

It's possible to get married in Switzerland where ever you live. But the requirements vary depending on where you are from? Where in Africa do you come from. I'm not sure if being resident in France will alter things or not. The Zivilstandsamt will be able to tell you exactly what you need.

For example a British citizen living outside of Switzerland needs;
Birth cert (less than 6 months old)
Certificate of no impediment
Copy of passport.

I think this then has to be submitted via the embassy to the Zivilstandsamt.
