Re: Flat Application Docs for Foreigners

** UPDATE **

Hi all, just wanted to post a quick update. We've been working on gathering documents for our dossier and recently found out that it's possible to order the attestation de non poursuite from the Canton of Geneva online - they'll even mail it to a foreign address for you at no additional cost! Having the official Swiss document is a big weight off our shoulders, so I wanted to make a short post about it in case anyone else out there is feeling stumped.

You can order the attestation here: https://ge.ch/opfopattpours_public/formulaire/

Good luck all!

Do you actually understand what this document is about? It shows that while living in Switzerland you paid your bills. If you have not lived in CH does it not make any sense and I am surprised that the canton is willing to do this at all... On the other hand does it sound pretty francophone to me that they are willing to sell you an empty sheet of paper that is no use to you or a landlord. I just got myself a place and had no problem at all to explain to the landlord that I cannot get this to him as it does not exist where I live right now

I do understand what the document represents, thank you for your concern. It correctly asserts that I do not have a record of any debts or defaults within the Canton, information that a landlord renting an apartment within that Canton may find valuable regardless of my current place of residence. I'm sure you can understand how frequent stories about newcomers needing 4, 5, or even 6 months to find a place to live and a "pending" status on our permits have made us keen to gather as many other official documents as possible. I just wanted to share this option with anyone else who may be in our situation.
