Re: Police of Aliens in Zurich?

Anyone have the address where foreigners collect their residency permits after arriving in Zurich?

Re: Police of Aliens in Zurich?

You pick the permit up from the place you registered.
They should have sent you a letter giving you all the details of what you need to bring along, and the address.

I recieved a 3 month visa from the Consulate in Toronto saying that I have to enter Swizterland within 3 months, and need to get my residency permit from the Police of Aliens, within 8 days of my arrival in Zurich.

When I registered as a resident in Holland, I was greeted by a pleasant oldish gentleman who said:

"Welcome to the Strange Police."

Vreemde Politie -> similar to the the German Fremdenpolizei (alien police).

Hence the mistranslation to Strange Police. I did manage to keep a straight face.
