Deportable Offenses

All this talk about rules and this tax and that tax and don't feed the Gremlins after midnight got me to wondering:

"What offenses would get one deported from Switzerland?"

In the US, one could lose his/her residency status for committing a crime of immoral turpitude (basically, any felony for which time is served) including arrests for drug possession, sale, use, etc. This does not include minor traffic or civil infractions.

What kinds crimes would the Swiss frown upon enough to take away one's permit and send him/her packing back from whence he/she came?

Other than flushing the toilet after 10pm, pretty much nothing.

Re: Deportable Offenses

The ECHR has defined the Boultif Test which is binding on Switzerland.

Quote:
The ECtHR rejected Switzerland's judgment. In so doing, the court determined "guiding principles" for this type of case, establishing a four-step framework. In the first three steps, the court determines whether there has been interference with family life, and if so, if it fits with the factors allowing for such interference in Article 8(2) (such as national security or public safety). The fourth and final step asks whether the interference is "necessary in a democratic society," and weighs eight factors:

(1) The nature and seriousness of the offense,

(2) The length of the applicant's stay in the expelling country,

(3) The length of time elapsed since the offense and the applicant's behavior during that time,

(4) The nationalities of the parties concerned,

(5) The applicant's family situation (length and "effectiveness" of the marriage),

(6) Whether the spouse knew about the offense at the time of entering into the marriage,

(7) Whether there are children, and their ages, and

(8) The potential difficulties family members would face in relocating to the applicant's home country.

Re: Deportable Offenses

Switzerland is one of those countries anal enough to warrant a "if you're in doubt, don't do it" attitude

Oh no. That's a deal breaker. Barefoot is how God wanted me to drive. The rest I could live with.
