Leaving Switzerland advice

We plan to move to the US around mid July, and needed advice regarding timeline to deregister, should I deregister now or just a week before leaving, I have read the forum regarding leaving Switzerland, but as I understand once you deregister, your insurance in cancelled.
Thanks

You deregister 10 days in advance (for moving cantons) so I am going to assume it is similar. for the rent 3-4 months in advance telling that you are moving out.

Could you please tell where you went to deregister from Basel. I am moving out of CH soon as well and i need to get all the paperwork straighten out.

And do i need to provide them with any paperwork in order to deregister? i.e plane ticket ?

And one question i have. I will be moving out of my appartment end of the month and out of basel sometime in the middle of July. But i want to cancel my cable etc... so i dont have to pay an extra month. However, if deregistration is only valid for ten days and i am not leaving until middle of July i have a feeling they will make me pay for july as well. What happens if you overstay your deregistration for a few days longer do you know??

thanks a lot

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

I de-registered here http://www.bdm.bs.ch/
From what my employer said you can de register up to 2 months before your actual departure. It was very quick (except for the waiting in line) Took less than 10 mins. All you need is your permit. Your last question i'm nor sure about?? Sorry!

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

We have deregistered with our local Gemeindehaus with a leaving date of 31 August. We received a confrmation with that date (cost CHF 30). We sent our health insurer a letter stating our intention to cancel the insurance at 31 August with a copy of the deregistration confirmation. They (Visana) confirmed in writing that the insurance would end 31 August.

What happens when you de-register? Do they confiscate your permit there are then or does it simply go out of service on the appropriate date?

The reason I ask, is that I will be in and out of the country at least twice before I leave for good.

THanks.

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

They took the permit and gave us a copy which they stamped and certified for use until our leaving date.

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

Hi all
Could anyone tell me exactly where in Zurich I need to go to de-register?
I understand it is near paradeplatz somewhere but I am not sure where?
If anyone has the details or could tell me where to find them, I would be really grateful.
Many thanks

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

I don't think it is - hence my question. You register at the Kreisburo for the area that you live in, but it seems from this thread that to de-register you have to go to a central Zurich office near Paradeplatz. That is the one I am asking about.
Thanks anyway.

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

You deregister where you registered in the kanton anyway, unless the city centre has different rules.

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

You can deregister whenever you want and just tell them your last day in CH. It takes about 2 hours for the whole process and there is a fee!

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

Thanks I will give it a try
I went to see my local Kreisburo (Wipkingen) and they told me that I had to deregister in Zurich centre, at the city hall and gave me the contact details. I then called the city hall and they told me I can only deregister 30 days before leaving the country. It seems the authorities try to catch you out, as my health insurance have told me I need to provide them with the official deregistration letter as soon as possible to avoid extra charges. There seem to be mixed views on how long Cablecom need. I called them and they said 1 month is fine, but friends have had terrible experiences with them demanding 3 months notice. Regardless, I am assuming that once you leave the country, companies sending bills to an address you no longer live at is not going to do much good anyway?

No this is not correct. You can register in the Kreisburo in Zurich, but you have to de-register at the stadthaus der stadt zurich, which is just behind Paradeplatz towards the Limmat. Look on the map for Stadthausquai...

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

I should also have stated that your health insurance is paid up until the end of the month that you are leaving. So if you leave on 10 August you must pay the premium for the whole of August.

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

We were told by our local Gemeinde that we should de-register 4 weeks before leaving.

They changed one part of the permit to add the leaving date, and gave us a letter which you can send to cabelcom etc. to cancel your accounts. It should only be 1 months notice with cabelcom if you are leaving the country.

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

I was looking on the following recommended website http://www.bdm.bs.ch/, however I could not find the specific page for deregistration. Is there a form I must fill out prior to going to the immigration office, or can I take care of it all at the office site.

Re: Leaving Switzerland advice

There is a form on the website that you just fill in and submit online. They then will send you the de-registration letter and a bill for 20CHF.
Or you can just go to the office at Schifflande and they will give you the letter in about 10mins and 20CHF later.
