Having guests in a rented apartment

We have been living in Baden for 2 weeks now and a friend would like to visit. He would stay for 2 nights. Do we have to ask the landlord if it is ok to have a guest?

Re: Having guests in a rented apartment

Up to about a month's stay, you don't have to inform the owner/landlord.

Perhaps I should explain.
The more people living in an apartment, will result in the switches, doors, taps and other things being used more often, and they will wear out quicker. The other problem is more guests living in the apartment will use more hot water, and so the total house bill for energy will increase slightly.

These are all finicky points, so I said up to a month shouldn't be a problem, but then again, more than 2 weeks might bring complaints too...

You will need to contact your local immigration bureau and apply for a daily visitor pass. It costs 50chf per day but it will mean you can have guests staying at your place without them being arrested during the night.

Oh Hold on..! I forgot about that but in basel it starts with 3 nights, well 72 hours to be 100% correct.

Baden might be different as each kanton has its own rules, best to check with the migrationsamt.

A friend wanted to stay with her boyfriend in rheinfelden kt AG and the geminde said only 1 night a week was allowed and she had to inform them of when in order to receive the visitor bill!!

...and this applies only to visitors from EU?

i have hard time understanding the logic for non-EU. they anyway have to get visa, provide address proof where they plan to say and letter from invitee stating they will stay at his address.

Re: Having guests in a rented apartment

Non EU need a visa and the visitor pass I believe as proof of the address.

Richdog is joking (I assume). The only time landlords get involved with guests is if it involves an extended stay, or if neighbors get really nosy or start to complain. We've had guests for as long as 2 weeks without an issue.

Re: Having guests in a rented apartment

Please notify your neighbors at which time your visitors will be using the loo. And inform your visitor about the no loo usage rule between 10 pm and 6 am. Canton of Aargau, Appenzell Innerroden, and Uri till 7am. City of Zurich it is 11pm on Friday and Saturday.

My niece stayed 2+ months, until she met some Italian at carnevale and moved in with him.

I think that this informing the landlord BS must be an Expat thing.
