Geneva - where to get forms to apply for regular naturalization

Good afternoon All

I have been living in and a resident of Geneva for 12 years, currently holding a C-permit (EU national). I would like to apply for naturalization, but I can't figure out where I get the application forms from. Someone told me that, given than I'm older than 26, I need to make a centralized application through Bern, but then someone else told me that it's done through Geneva.

I'd be grateful for your help and advise as to how I can start the process.

Thanks!

I don't mean to be rude but how can you live in Geneva for 12 years and ask to be neutralized when you don't even know where to get forms from or how the process goes....wonder what will you be doing with the integration exams then

@ Molula - thanks!

@ Mowvich - because I e-mailed the office of population and they came back to say that I needed to attend the office in Bern to collect the forms from there - thats why I said I have received conflicting information.

I would start with your local commune. That's what we did. We obtained all the necessary forms from there, we didn't have to go anywhere near Bern. Then again, different communes and different cantons have different rules.

Everything is explained on the website of Canton Geneva.
