Issuing a B permit at Préverenges commune

Hello. I will make a request to issue a Permit B at the commune of . I have read the text below from the commune site:
Déclaration d'arrivée en Suisse
Au Contrôle des habitants, délai 8 jours.
Tarif : Fr. 10.--
Suisses : certificat de famille ou certificat individuel d'état civil ou acte d'origine.
Etrangers : passeport ou carte d'identité, acte de mariage, acte de naissance des enfants + autorisation si délivrée.
I am non-Suisse, single and without children. So, what documents do I need?
  • Copy of my Passport
  • Contract
  • Anything else?
Do I need a Birth Certificate? I'm asking because the commune of Lausanne also asks for a Birth Certificate. Is it needed at Préverenges?
It's clearly stated that a Birth Certificate is needed for born children, but I'm childless.

Also, what is the "autorisation si délivrée"? I've been given an "Attenstation" from my employer for this purpose (to issue the permit). Is it this one?

Thank you.

Re: Issuing a B permit at Préverenges commune

I haven't registered in Préverenges but I did not need my birth certificate to register - only passport, and I think work contract, and perhaps a rental contract (as your address is written on the permit, so you would need some evidence for that.) Sorry it's a long time ago now!!
The authorisation letter probably refers to the one from the Service de la Population in Lausanne saying that your stay in CH is authorized - it is a temporary document until your permit is issued.

Thank you.

I knew too that you don't need a birth certificate to register. However, when I went to the commune of Lausanne (had another address then) they requested a birth certificate. Your commune was not the commune of Lausanne, was it?

I'm starting to believe that it's not needed at all and that I just stumbled on a grumpy employee. :P

I registered at the commune of Préverenges 2 years ago, and I provided my passport, my birth certificate, my 'attestation' and two passport sized photographs...

Which was what my copy of 'Living and Working in Switzerland' told me I, as a single person, needed to bring...

Now, I can't remember but I THINK that they looked at them all...

However, I was registering for the first time anywhere in Switzerland. I'm a little confused by your status, as you say that you are registering for a B Permit, but you also mention having previously registered in Lausanne...

If you want to PM me to clarify, I could possibly wander along tomorrow morning and ask for you. I have to go to the post office anyway, and it's just across the square...

Welcome to Préverenges, by the way.

Welcome to Préverenges, by the way.
And a very nice commune I might add.

I have received my Permit B. Question is: do I have now to carry with me other forms of identification (ID, Passport, etc) or is the permit sufficient?

Re: Issuing a B permit at Préverenges commune

I just carry my permit with me. I don't have an ID card (I'm from the UK). Never bothered with the passport.

I've never been stopped and asked to show my papers. But once I called the police to my flat, and they wanted to see my permit... nothing more.

The permit always seems enough for picking up parcels, opening a library account etc.
