I have Swiss friends with more than one, so it's possible. One from Uri, one from ZH.

Yet, you can only have one on your passport and only one Heimatschein. When I got citizenship, I ordered a Heimatschein from both Basel & Schaffhausen. Basel were quicker, and Schaffhausen could some how see that they'd issued me one and wrote to me saying I couldn't have 2.

Well all I can say is - that’s what our is cards say ... when I work out how to lower the resolution on a photo I can post them...

Sounds strange to me, unless you lived in Spreitenbach for a long time before you decided to become Swiss. Like by then you would have received it anyway, married or not.
My husband got mine (he even applied for my second one, which I thought was funny as I had actually forgotten I was citizen of that community too) but not the one of where we actually lived in.

Naaa, it's not that I don't believe you. I just pondered what the reason for it could be.

Is it possible that you both have 2 and have ended up with different ones on your IDs? Place to check is your marriage cert and your naturalisation certificate.

Re: Heimatort

Possibly. I have no idea why they are different. I didn’t realize they should be the same.
All I can say is that I applied after living here for a year but being married for 9 years and living outside CH. for facilitated naturalization...
I checked our ID cards and that is what they say...

Re: Heimatort

actually, to be honest it never occurred to me that they should be the same... but I'll check the marriage cert and naturalisation document as we were married in Zurich and naturalised here so I have them all...

They don’t need to be the same. But normal you get the one of your husband.
It’s possible you have both. You can only list one on most paperwork. So it’s possible you have both but that the one on your paperwork is not the same as your husbands.

If it was through the facilitated route then she should have gotten the one(s) from the husband.

It is specified in Art. 27 of the old law (was valid from 1. Jan. 1992)
https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...0000/141.0.pdf

and also in Art. 21 of the current law (valid from 1. Jan. 2018)
https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...index.html#a21

As miniMia says. If you have more than one, only one will be listed on the ID. You can chose the one which should be visible.

I got the one from my late wife when I became Swiss (who had gotten it from her ex, as she was originally Canadian).

And my born and bred Swiss wife got mine added when she married me.

Her ID card with my last name lists her original one, however, but all documents need to be ordered from mine, and we even got a letter after we married stating that.

"may decide" not "must decide". The spouse can get all or just one. The German wording implies the same.

Re: Heimatort

Having investigated further I think this is what happened....

I have a Heimatort piece of paper which I got when I got citizenship which lists 3 - Dietikon ZH, Zofingen AG and Spreitenbach AG.....
hubbys passport and ID card only show Dietikon ZH and my passport and ID card show Spreitenbach AG...... I wasn't Swiss when we got married.

Re: Heimatort

My wife has two.
When I became a citizen my Gemeinde asked me to choose which one to display.
I had never been to either so I chose the one with better-known wine.

You can simply email yourself the photo and chose a smaller size for the attachment to downsize the picture.

Thanks for the link.
I can't find where I read it now. I wish I had kept the link.



It for sure said may only acquire one. I cant' remember if I read it in french or in English. So, it was either a bad translation or just bad information.

Re: Heimatort

I acquired my wife's heimatort and we went to visit it recently. Absolutely fascinating - it's a small village and the local churchyard has loads of graves of people with the same surname as my wife's grandfather. Really interesting to see where her family all came from. Who'd have thought years ago that one day I'd be Bärner...

Admit it, you only married her to officially slow down significantly.
