Non-EU swiss citizen rules for Children & Military service

Hello all

There are many previous discussions on this topic, but also learnt the rules have changed since 2018... hence posting this again for latest info

1. Where to find more info on : Rules for Children to apply for citizenship for non-EU family? considering they are on C permit and living in swiss for less than 10 years

2. Who does the swiss military service work for children getting swiss citizenship? what are the rules?

3. Any specific reason for parents not to go swiss citizenship and only apply for children? what are the new laws here?

Re: Non-EU swiss citizen rules for Children & Military service

Hi there

This depends on your canton (sharing the AG link)

1. From my understanding children and parents can apply as individuals. So if they qualify they don‘t have to wait for you. The laws recently changed and their time in CH tell double between the ages of 10-20.

2. Military service is compulsory for men but optional for woman. When boys become citizens they are eligible for conscription. Link to wikipedia Maybe ask a more specific question?

3. Not that I know of. I know of many young men who wait until 35 before applying because they don‘t want to go to the army.
