Re: Can I use a 2-month AirBnb rental to register as a resident?

Reviving an old post...

Moving to Canton Zurich (from Zug) into an AirBnB. Does anyone know if using an AirBnB is ok currently, to register as an address?

I plan to deregister and reregister register via "eMovingCH" and apparently they ask for "Rental agreement or apartment ID of the new apartment" as well as other docs.

I guess advice will be to ask the AirBnB host ;-) but anyone any current experience?

Also, is there a minimum rental period they expect? I am reluctant to book an AirBnB for 3 months in case all my plan go to s**t and think maybe 6 weeks to start with should be enough.

Thx

Re: Can I use a 2-month AirBnb rental to register as a resident?

I am currently in an AirBnB, and have successfully registered with this as my address. I simply had to show the invoice with the address on it, and the booking dates.

It took 5 weeks for my residency permit to come through, although if you're already a resident and the permit doesn't state your address then perhaps this isn't a consideration for you.

As it is different per Kanton, call your Gemeinde. What works in Basel does not have to be in Zurich or elsewhere.

Any permit will have an address on it

Very good point, I forget that rules here are canton-specific.
My Basel permit doesn't show my address but of course Zurich might be different.

September 30 is one of the "big" moving dates, it may be helpful to cover that (plus perhaps a few days beyond for increased flexibility).
