B-Permit Renewal

Hi all,

In April we will be moving to another appt. within the same Geminde and actually same street. My B-Permit renewal is scheduled in Oct and I can apply for renewal 3moths prior to expiry date, which is last week of july.

My Q's:
1) Does geminde charge a fee for "change of address" in Permit( I expect), if so is it same amount as of permit renewal (65 chf) ?

2) Is it illegal if I dont inform change of address rt now(in April) and declare only when I apply for permit renewal ? Is it worth to do all this to save cpl of hundered chf !

I anyway plan to check directly with geminde, but but any tips from you ?!?

thanks n rgds,
Nav

The gemeinde does charge for a change of address. I'm not sure it's the full 65:- though.

Litespeed said it well...

Welcome to Switzerland. Here, if someone needs to process any document that you require, especially official documents, then chances are there will be a bill attached....
I would not recommend not informing the Gemiende of the change, it's always best to do what's expected. Why? Because it works. On the other hand, you should find out from the Kreisburo how long you can leave it before you register your change of address.

You would also be advised to go to the post office and register your change of address so they can properly redirect your mail. If you don't do this, they will charge you a substantial amount of money every time they need to find your new address.

Since this is done through the gemeinde, I'm assuming you can see the mess that you could find yourself in if you don't notify the gemeinde of your change off address.

It will ultimately cost you a lot more than 65:-

Re: B-Permit Renewal

You should be aware that the post office require notice of a change of address. I forget exactly how many days (7?, 10?), but was surprised how long it was.

Re: B-Permit Renewal

Hi there,
  • Inform the local gemeinde that you will move to a new address
  • The gemeinde then will make a copy of your B bewiligung
  • They will ask you when is a official date you will move in at your new resident -
  • 2 or 3 days after your move to the new apartment, they will gave you a new copy of your B - Bewiligung with a new addresss of course !! and bill you 25 sfr for the paperwork.
  • Please notice them 2 week in advance for you and their convience.

My advice is don't try to be cleaver, cleaver.

Here is some tips i just copy from a homegate.

Address change
With suggestions, you can take care of changing your address in no time.

Who should you notify of a change of address? When is an e-mail enough, when do you need to do more? homegate.ch has put together all the important points about changing your address.

Deregister at your old community
Go to the resident registration office of your old community. In some places you can do this online. You should bring, or send by post, the original registration slip and, if needed, the military service booklet (males, up to 40 years of age).
Residents' Registration Office: deregister

Register in your new community
You need to hand in your papers (certificate of place of origin, Swiss only) to the new community. In some communities, you can register online and send the certificate by post.
Residents' Registration Office: register

Dept of Roads and Traffic
Report your new address to the Dept of Roads and Traffic. If you have one of the new driver's licences in credit card format, you can do this online. The automobile registration and the old driver's licence must be sent to the Dept of Roads and Traffic by post or delivered personally.
Road Traffic Offices

Additional important places to report a change of address
- Post Office (in person or online) (German version)
-
Billag (online or letter)

- Telephone company (swisscom fixnet, sunrise, etc.)
- Electricity provider (sometimes online is possible)
- Bank (by letter, if possible via telebanking)
- Credit card companies (letter with signature)
- Insurances (by telephone or e-mail)
- Newspapers / Magazines
