Applying for apartments in bern - debt enforcement register


I am moving from USA to Switzerland in September to start a new job. I do have a good salary and plan to move in with my girlfriend who is also moving from USA.

We have been searching for flats and made a few applications in the last few days. We see that most of the apartment applications dept enforcement register, some kind of a credit score. I read that this can be obtained online - assuming you have some kind of history in Switzerland. How would you take this as an expat moving to the country from abroad? Should I upload my american credit score report for this?

Many thanks

You can only get a (useful) debt enforcement extract if you have an address in Switzerland.

I would suggest to provide in place of a debt enforcement extract, a copy of your employment contract (or if that is too confidential for your taste) having your employer write a short confirmation of what your salary is (or at the least confirming that your salary is at least a certain AMOUNT), which should at least be 3 times the rent amount.
