Deregistration process

Hello,

I am moving out of Zurich by end of this month. How long the law permits to stay here after deregistration? or do I need to provide the exact date of my leaving to Kanton/Gamande

Re: Deregistration process

Isn't that 3 months for EU citizens? That's what I know at least...

Re: Deregistration process

EU citizens and some non-EU nationals who don't need a tourist visa to visit Switzerland sort of revert to tourist status after they deregister, but non-EU nationals who do need a tourist visa will have to leave the country by the date of their deregistration. And yes you have to give an exact date for deregistration.

Hi, could you please elaborate on the "sort of revert to tourist status" after deregister?
Is this in any way enforced or checked how long you remain in the country?

Many Thanks.

Re: Deregistration process

EU nationals and non-EU's who don't need a tourist visa to visit Switzerland can be here for up to 3 months as "tourists". For EU nationals as there's no border controls then it doesn't really matter much, but for a non-EU national who doesn't need a tourist visa the entry/deregistration dates are vital to prove that you haven't overstayed in the Schengen area. The deregistration document you get from the gemeinde/commune office states when you ceased to be a resident of Switzerland so you could effectively have 3 more months as a "tourist" here, providing you make sure to leave before that 3 months is up. The registration documents shows that you were resident up to a certain point so your 3 months would start from that date. When you do leave the country you present your passport with its entry stamp in it AND the deregistration document which gives your deregistration date. Border control will look at both and providing you're within 3 months (90 days actually) of the deregistration date you won't be in trouble for overstaying in Schengen.

Overstaying your time in the Schengen Area could result in a fine, a record of the overstay on your file and in some cases a ban of 1-3 years from entering the entire Schengen Area, not just Switzerland.

It may also make it more difficult to get another permit here or elsewhere in Schengen.

All non-EU nationals entries and exits from Schengen are recorded on a central database so it's quite easy for border control in all the Schengen Area countries to check whether you've overstayed or not.
