Re: Bad luck with naturalisation law

The question still stands; what's the rush?

From B permit to C almost nothing changes really. Even if you lose your job while holding a B permit, you can still stay in the country for almost 2 years I believe.

I hold a B permit and am coming from Turkey which is going towards a dictatorship everyday. Even I am not worried so much.

So why the out cry? life is not fair, what else?

You want unfairness; here is one: I have both a Swiss and British driving licence but just because I hold a turkish passport I pay almost double the insurance compared to a Swiss or EU person.

Re: Bad luck with naturalisation law

Patience is the key. You are not being discriminated, but the rule applies to all.

Someone getting a C in 10 compared to you might not have a job at CERN, but you've had.

Someone getting a C in 10 compared to you might not have a Ph.D., but you have.

Count the cherries in your basket and wait a couple of years.
Get your German and other requirements for naturalization sorted out and nail it when time comes.

Good luck and enjoy some sun while it shines!

I myself find that tad unfair, considering everyone has to at least pass the Practical Driving Test to get the License converted in first place. If the govt. has issued a Swiss Driving License and accepted your driving skills per Swiss Safety/Driving Standards, then why discriminate based on Nationality.

Can this not be challenged with Authorities?

to my knowledge it is challenged and there is a court ruling asking the insurance companies to fix it but I beleive there is no timeline.

you can follow it here: https://www.englishforum.ch/insuranc...s-persons.html

OP, you do rather make it sound like all your effort in enduring Switzerland for nearly 12 years has come to nothing.

If, on the other hand, you've enjoyed living here, have experienced and learned a lot, and look forward to continuing your life in Switzerland then why not do just that. Swiss citizenship will probably come your way (if you've toed the line) in due course; in fact, with not much of a delay, maybe 6-12 months, if you can organise an early C-permit.

Relax, enjoy your life.


hey, how do you know that I learned a lot or nothing? My post is not about that.

No rush at all, but my thead is not about relaxing or enjoing the life.
