Re: Applying for Swiss Citizenship

You probably need to apply in the Kanton where you currently live?

Thank you. That is very clear. As I plan to move, I wanted to understand if there would be any impact if I applied for Naturalisation in BS vs. AG i.e. if one would be more challenging than the other based on people who have gone through the process.

If facilitated, it doesn't matter. If regular, then there are varying requirements for each municipality. Don't move before you know what the requirements are for both places.
It is regular and that is why I wanted to check. BS and AG have different requirements for sure.

Remember that the process is: Gemeinde approval —> Kanton —> Bund, and the Gemeinde will have residency requirements.

Moving mid-application will reset matters, as you will need to meet the residency requirements of your new Gemeinde.

(I.e. have lived there for xx years).

Re: Applying for Swiss Citizenship

Hello, Everyone..

While I do not yet meet all the criteria for Swiss naturalisation, I anticipate that this will happen in the next year or so. So, I wanted to just be prepared to make the process as smooth as possible. A couple of questions that I haven't been able to find information on for anyone that has gone through the process (I'm in Lausanne, Vaud if there happens to be anything specific to this commune) :

1) Will the time spent on a permit L count for the 10 year requirement, (i spent ~6 months on it)

2) Is there a requirement for a recently issued birth certificate (I'm originally from India, so this might take some work if it is required)

Thanks and have a very nice day

Quick question. Does it matter which Kanton you are based in when you apply for the citizenship. I have been living in AG but I have been advised that BS may be more open/welcoming in terms of citizenship requests. I understand that the Federal guidelines are consistent but the Kantonal and Gemeinde requirements vary quite a bit. Welcome feedback from others who have experience/advise on the same. Many Thanks.
Yes, it is important as to what kind of application you're making.

Facilitated? It won't matter, as the application goes through Bern and you'll take on the Heimat of your spouse.

Standard 10 year residency application? This can vary by Gemeinde, but *generally* you need to have lived in the Kanton for the full 10 years. I understand that some Kantons offer reciprocity, but others will tell you that the clocks starts over if you change Kantons anytime with those 10 years.

Welcome to the Forum. Yes, you need to provide a birth certificate that has been issued within the 6 months preceding your application. So don't get it now but closer to when you're eligible to apply.

“Recently issued birth certificate?”

You can’t change where you we’re born

Re: Applying for Swiss Citizenship

The birth certificate can be "recently issued" in the sense that the Swiss authorities can require a re-issued copy of that certificate, issued within the last six months, by the official authorities now in charge of the area in which you were born, or in which your birth was registered.

I had to pay for a new, datestamped, copy from the authorities in Edinburgh.

Under new rules come into force this year, it's possible to apply for Swiss citizenship after 10 years residence providing you have a C permit. This is my case so next month I will submit my application. Anyone else in the same boat? I am curious as to how long the application process will take as it is not mentioned on the canton of Geneva website.
Were you successful in obtaining Swiss citizenship Dack Rambo?

Does anyone know which authorities and businesses you are obliged to notify of your change of citizenship? And which ones it is beneficial (e.g. save money, simplify things) to notify?
