some questions about filling announcement of depart (form D)


I am trying to announce my departure from Switzerland and request an attestation de depart to cancel my insurance contract now. There are a few parts I am not sure about and I am grateful if anyone can help

1. Conservez-vous une activité à Genève?

This is one question on the form. My French is not very good and the translation says that this question is about whether I will keep an activity in Geneva. I am a PhD student in Geneva and currently also working in France (actually I have been working abroad for about a year and seriously late for announcing my depart...). So should I say yes because I am technically still a student in a Swiss university?

2. Tax?

I have seen from other sites that before asking for attestation de depart I will need a certificate proving that I have paid all the taxes and no debts in Switzerland. But on the OCP website, only 3 documents are required: 1) completed form D; 2) passport copy; 3) payment for certificate if needed. Do I really need to request a certificate of tax payment or something before apply for attestation de depart?

3. Attestation de départ souhaitée pour vos formalités?

This is another question on the form. I think it asks for what purpose I need the attestation for? The choices it gives are

Caisse de compensation (AVS)
Institutions de prévoyance (LPP)
Service des douanes
Autre(s) motif(s)

Since I need it for canceling insurance, I should choose the last one right?

Thank you very much!

Re: some questions about filling announcement of depart (form D)

Geneva is very special when it concerns administration. I would visit the tax office and ask for the certificate.

They will ask you to complete the tax return form for the year 2015. You work for 2 hours, then give them the completed form, and they say come back next month as they need time to evaluate the information. You tell them you are leaving this week, and they then stamp your leaving form.

Good luck, you'll need it!
