Re: Swiss nationality

Read this link first to understand the different ways to acquire Swiss citizenship.

Then browse the Permits sections - there are many existing threads, some may apply to you, and if not, ask specifics here.

Re: Swiss nationality

I know now that I should have used the search button, but I only wanted advice, i dont think it needs sarcastic comments. Maybe you would have made the same mistake if you were a widow all alone here. Thanks

I don't think so. I've always known how to spell wit.

Never understood this reasoning really. Everyone goes through traumas, everyone has new challenges - what makes you think this warrants you some kind of special deal?

I'm sorry you're alone, I'm sorry for your loss - I really am. But get over yourself and do real research before getting snappy.

It's nobody here's fault that you're having a hard time, so no, you don't get leave to ask dumb questions.

By the way, you say "formally from Manchester" in your profile. Ah I see - you're only informally here, and now you want to be formally Swiss.

Re: Swiss nationality

As far as I know you need to live at least 5-10 years in the same place or in your "Gemeinde".

Then you can apply.

But as this also costs lots of money: the only real advantage of being Swiss is, that one can vote or buy real estate. I'm not so sure about the real estate though. I think you can also buy it as a non-Swiss living here. Lex Koller is not active anymore.

Re: Swiss nationality

In short, 12 years residency in Switzerland, the preceding 5 years of which in the same gemeinde/commune.
Armandair, you don't have to be Swiss to own property, we bought ours whilst we were on C-permits

She's been a member since 2006 FCS! She'd been on EF for a full year before you came along...

You also get a Swiss passport which for travel to some areas can be advantageous.

...and she's made 80 posts in total. Joining EF and being an active member are 2 completely different things. With the reception she got for a simple question, I can understand why.

You can also leave the country whenever you want, and not worry about your "permit" being taken away. Permits are only good as long as you live in Switzerland. For most after so many months not living in the country permits can be revoked. Passport has more advantages then permits.
