Facilitated Naturalisation - What am I in for??

Hi All,

I've just applied for facilitated naturalisation and was wondering what am I in for during the process?

My husband was born in Australia to a Swiss father and Australian mother. He holds his swiss nationality and passport by blood. I am Australian and we have been together for 11 years being married for 6 of those. Our three sons also hold their swiss nationality by their father's blood.

We live in Australia and I'm starting this process with the Consulate General in Sydney, as that is where we are registered. Any help and/or information/outlining about this process would be greatly appreciated just stressing out a little!

Thanks, Shannon.

Welcome to the Forum.
As is so often the case, there is a Sticky at the top of this sub-forum. In the sticky there are links to various threads with info on the main subjects which are covered here. Facilitated Naturalisation is one of them. The link to the official government site is there.

Personal experiences can be found by searching in this section of the forum. Other folk will probably be along soon to tell you how they got on. Remember thoŻgh that everything said here is put from the point of view of the person concerned, so be prepared for conflicting information.

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - What am I in for??

Hi and thanks for the reply. I've had a bit of a look around and found some really useful info i'm just stressing a little as I feel this is a probably a futile exercise and just wanted to see what sort of replies I received.

my husband was born in australia to an australian mother and has only spent about 3 months in switzerland as a child for a holiday. his father also never taught him german and because we live in a regional area, we have no swiss clubs or Tafe/Uni's that teach german. His grandmother, aunties and cousin's live in switzerland but as for the so called 'close ties' of visiting and having bank accounts and property, we just don't have any of those. it all comes down to not being able to afford to go. its not that we don't talk on the phone, it's just hard finding the money to go.

i suppose my main reason for applying is so that we can be a family and I can have the same rights as my husband and children. We would also like to see about taking up residence/making a life over there and just giving it a go once our boys are a little bit bigger. we figure you only live once. but if this proves too difficult with the close ties then the only other option seems to just go and apply later. thanks again for taking the time to answer.

shannon.
