Facilitated naturalization Abroad Questionnaire

Hi All,

I have received forms to fill in order to start Facilitated naturalization.
I have two concerns based on the questionnaire:
- One of the questions was about if I know Swiss people living abroad Switzerland. Is it OK to put my family in law since they are not living in Switzerland for a number of years.

- Is it OK to mention an organization even if I only started attending events just recently?

Thank you in advance for your kind contribution

Re: Facilitated naturalization Abroad Questionnaire

Welcome to the Forum.

I believe if you're applying for facilitated naturalization from outside Switzerland, the point is to prove you have close ties to Switzerland. That generally involves visiting family and friends here. Are there no relatives living here or that are regularly here you can list?

List whatever club you joined, even if only recently.

Re: Facilitated naturalization Abroad Questionnaire

Hi there, yes it’s all about ties to the country. I guess having referees overseas is better than none at all but the Swiss are quite specific about what they ask for so it’s better to get to know people in the country if you can and ask them.

As 3Wishes says, list anything that that you’re involved in.

I have visited Switzerland on multiple occasions and it was the occasion for me to tie relationships with my wife family over there. Now I am and expatriate in the UAE and have been able to meet Swiss citizens recently via after-work drinks held by the Swiss Business Counsel.
I wanted to include my inlaws since part of them live in Tunisia and I wanted to include them since I vised them back once a year

Re: Facilitated naturalization Abroad Questionnaire

...plus having friends in Switzerland / Swiss friends overseas is good as it helps you understand the culture etc. and makes it easier for you to get settled and integrated if you move there.

I don’t live in Switzerland at the moment but I’ve learned so much from my friends and family there and from my many visits, that it feels like home now.
