Swiss Passport Special Case

Hallo Everyone,

I have searched the forum, but never come across anything related to my question . Please help me if any one has some idea.

My husband ( Indian) holds a B permit in Switzerland for 3 years and is working . Since his works needs to visit different countries, his company always have issues with his visas because of his nationality . So they told him that they will apply for a Swiss passport Did any one hear some thing like this ?
Whether a company able to help him to get a swiss pass ?

Regards
vava

Re: Swiss Passport Special Case

Hallo

Thanks for the link... I have already read that ..but my question is my husband is here in swiss only for 3 years and I am a C permit holder with 10 yrs in switzerland...
His company told that they wrote a letter to the office asking to allow a swiss pass for him, as the company needs to send him across the world for project purposes.... Did any one hear some thing of this sort ?

Re: Swiss Passport Special Case

You should get a Siss passport, and then it will be much easier for him. A C w/ 10 years should make it easy for you.

Re: Swiss Passport Special Case

Hi, I think you need to contact the Buergamt of the city you live in. It's very different in different Kantons.
Good luck!

Re: Swiss Passport Special Case

Hi I have never heard of this but I am interested to hear what the eventual response will be. As far as I know one can only be granted Swiss Citizenship after having lived a couple (around 10) years in the country besides other requirements. There is also a facilitated naturalisation possible with fewer years but then a family member (usually spouse or parent) needs to be Swiss.

Re: Swiss Passport Special Case

A Swiss passport is issued to a Swiss citizen, which takes around 12 years.

A non-EU with a credit card Eurocompatible B permit can travel visa free to the Schengen zone, or elsewhere with an appropriate visa onto, in this case, the Indian passport.

A spouse of a Swiss national first receives a B permit.

In a nutshell, Swiss citizenship is tri-level with no central records.
1) Commune level ( length varies )
2) Cantonal level ( length varies )
3) Federal i.e. a Swiss ID and consequently a Swiss passport

The Swiss government, like other governments, may issue service or special passports such as:



These are normally for government employees for use abroad ( and in limited cases, special humanitarian cases )

Which case applies to you or your spouse ? If government, they will arrange for it.

Re: Swiss Passport Special Case

Who does he work for? The Government? Or possibly the Red Cross. If for anybody else I'd say it is impossible unless ...?!? Sounds very fishy to me, sorry.

The passport presented in the picture is for Swiss Citizens working abroad. It enables them to travel visa-free to certain countries.

Your husband is not a Swiss Citizen. His employer would better apply for a Special passport in the nationality he currently holds.
