Which Gemeinde?

Greetings, Denizens

Just arrived for purpose of migration, though visited many times over 20 years, so I know of the endless paperwork and box-ticking required, but the map, as they say, is not the territory.. so I have questions.

I have a temporary address in Buus which is in Basel-Land, but I want to apartment search in Basel Stadt. Where should I register? Does it have to be in the same Kanton as my temp address, or should it be the Kanton where I intend to live?

NB: I have read and re-read all the threads I can find before posting this, so I'll be grateful for your patience if it's already here but I missed it.

Re: Which Gemeinde?

Where you live now.

AFAIK, you have 2 weeks to register (this can vary, so check), this means that you have to go where you are now.

Why would a Gemeinde register a "maybe/maybe not" situation...? Otherwise, we'd all be registered in Zug, if you get my drift... just imagine:

Me: No really, officer, I am planning on living in Zug...
Officer: Is that why you just bought a house in SO, then?
Me: Ummm... yes, would you believe me if I told you that it is a temporary arrangement until I can find the right place?

Oh, and welcome to Basel.

Thanks, Carlos. Basel-Land it is.
