Leaving Switzerland Permanently

I have searched around a bit on the forum but haven't found what I'm looking for so far. I seem to remember seeing a list of stuff to do for people leaving Switzerland - does anyone know where to find that?

Cheers!

Not sure exactly what info you're looking for but try searching the word leaving, it returns a lot of interesting posts.

Here is a commercial site offering emigration services

Re: Leaving Switzerland guide

markalex once suggested the creation of a central place for information about leaving the country. So far there is no all-encompassing guideline on EF about that.

The relocation companies refer to this as repatriation, if you are returning to your home country. Most offer this service and will provide a checklist and possibly even a repatriation handbook. (all fee based).

Usually returning to one's home country is not as complicated as relocating to somewhere else as there is no language barrier and often one has friends or family who can assist back in the home country.

All I could find is this link, which may be of some use.
http://www.expatexchange.com/lib.cfm?articleID=273

If you are not leaving on short notice, the process will be easier.
Hope everything works out.

Re: Leaving Switzerland guide

Since there is no list. Let's create one

1. Seek advice on the EF on how to dodge the 40K in speeding tickets you acquired during your stay in "Swiss"

2. Organise a farewell party and don't forget to mention it in the Events section of the EF, please mention there is Free Beer for all...

3. At the evening before you leave, wait until 10.01 pm, take a shower and top it off with a hearty flush of the toilet...

4. ......

Anyway OT; as already mentioned above, most relocation agencies apparently have checklists, maybe someone has a copy and can post it? (if that is allowed)

Re: Leaving Switzerland Permanently

This link might be interesting for those moving from here to London.
And even if it isn't, it sure isn't much more off-topic than other posts.

Re: Leaving Switzerland Permanently

I went to Stadthaus Zürich today for my deregistration. It was accepted even my departure will be three weeks later. I though we can go there just two weeks before the departure though.

Leaving Switzerland Permanently

There's been a few people making mention of leaving Switzerland, and I think it would be good to gather ideas and suggestions and a list of must-dos when you leave the country.

Tell me your tips, what you think someone leaving the country for good should know, must do, etc.

Re: Leaving Switzerland Permanently

Start by giving plenty of notice to canceling subscriptions and services, preferably 3 months in advance and send notice of cancelation by recorded delivery (costs CHF 5 at the post office).

Re: Leaving Switzerland Permanently

Take a weekend break via public transport somewhere in the Graubunden or Ticino, Jura or Valais; walk, eat, relax and ask yourself if you really want to leave...

It is better to look forward than backwards... but permanently is a bit drastic.
