C permit before Passport?

Are only the number of years living in the country and other integration measures important when applying for a passport? Or is having a C permit necessary?

If it's already answered, could someone point me to the right thread?

Re: C permit before Passport?

A C permit doesn't come into it -- you just need to have lived in Switzerland for the prescribed period, legally.

From Wikipedia (neat summary of information also available on the Confederation's websites):

"The right to regular naturalization is granted not by the central government but by the cantons.

"Citizenship in Switzerland may be obtained by a permanent resident who lived in Switzerland for at least 12 years (any years spent in Switzerland between the 10th and the 20th years of age count double) and lived in the country for 3 out of the last 5 years before applying for citizenship. One should be able to speak in at least one of German (preferably Swiss German), French, Italian or Romansch (depending on the community) and show the following:
  • integration into the Swiss way of life;
  • familiarity with Swiss habits, customs and traditions;
  • compliance with the Swiss rule of law;
  • no danger to Switzerland's internal or external security."

Re: C permit before Passport?

Thanks very much for that. Does anyone have a document where it explicitly says that a C permit is not necessary?

I think that would be a bit like asking those who are absent to raise their hands. As always, if in doubt, ask the experts:

Re: C permit before Passport?

It's not a requirement at the moment, but it may be in the future. See this thread...

I believe it's after 6 years of marriage if you're living outside the country and after 5 years if you're living here. Type of permit doesn't really matter in the case of being married to a Swiss citizen, since you don't even have to be living here.
