May I ask is there any advantage for kids to apply separately?
My nationality doesn't allow double passports due to naturalization. It is allowed for children however if they get the passport before they turn 18 years old.

If, for example, the child meets the time in Switzerland criterion due to double counting from age 8-18, but the parents do not.


If the child wishes to be Swiss but the parents are happy with C permits (it's much easier to feel fully integrated if you go to school here than if you spend most of your time working and with your family, even if your language proficiency is sufficient).



If one of the parents loses their original citizenship if they acquire another (big examples are China and India).


In any case, the new naturalization criteria state that each person age 12 and up (at least in my Kanton) has to meet the criteria separately. The only downside is that it is more expensive if every member applies singly.
Thanks for the details!

Re: Normal naturalization - child

Last year when I was filing for my son, I was asked to show my passport, so had to go back the next day. My 'C' permit was not good enough.

The forms and the paperwork were not too bad, had to request copies of birth certificates and could not be older than 3 months.

All three of mine now have the formal interview, first one on Monday then 1st & 7th April.

Fingers crossed they all get through that okay.

My eldest child is 18 today and it would make me so happy if he and his brother and sister obtained the Swiss Nationality.

And you need this from every Gemeinde/commune they’ve ever lived in.
Thanks. I didn’t realise that. Our son had only lived in the one commune so it was pretty straightforward for him.
The whole process was really easy in fact. The most difficult bit now is trying to fit the military service in around his studies.

He can always opt out, I know several people who did (native born Swiss all of them).

I did not have to include or show any of my documents or my husband's, as they should be on file with the Kanton, I assume.
Switzerland: every place does it differently.


Good luck to your children!

Re: Normal naturalization - child

Hi,

My son whos is 15 just had his interview, seems to have gone well.
I know there is a way to go and each Kanton differs, but for those who had a child go through the process indepently, can you give us an idea of the costs we should expect.
Hard to find info on the fees for a minor.

thanks

Born in CH:
Federal: 50 Fr
Kanton: 0 Fr
Gemeinde (Stadt Basel): 0 Fr



Not born in CH:
Federal: 50 Fr
