Who to notify after becoming Swiss

Is there a list anywhere of who a new citizen should notify after becoming Swiss. An ex-colleague was nationalised on 3 April and is asking me.

I canít really remember, but I mentioned the obvious ones. Control des autos for driving license and carte gris, banks, postfinance. Who am I missing, or even better - is there a list?

I am looking for such a list too. Let's initiate it and hope it might become a Sticky

1. Employer
2. Bank(s)
3. Insurance(s) : Health, Liability, Household, Car etc.
4. Driving Authority *
5. Children's School *

*not too sure if they get automatically informed

Re: Who to notify after becoming Swiss

Why would my liability and household insurers give a stuff about my nationality?

Re: Who to notify after becoming Swiss

My insurance agent definitely said inform them when becoming Swiss, premiums will drop. At least that what he said compared to existing nationality, so probably true for most.

I think it's the usual KYC sh*t. Apparently dual citizens might get away with it as information is still correct.
However, in my case I lost my original citizenship by virtue of taking up another, so kind of obliged to correct the KYC records with Insurances.

Any place where you may have deposited your Last Will and Testament. In fact, check the inheritance laws of both/all countries of citizenship.

It is a pity that this thread was forgotten.

Anyway the same question started in another thread that might help others: https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...-diary-17.html

Perhaps a kind moderator would merge the two discussions.
