Family "Wohnsitzbestätigung"

I'm thinking of renewing our Meilenweiss ski passes (which I know is potentially a whole other thread on pros-cons at this point...)

They've introduced a significantly cheaper family ticket, but for this they require a confirmation from the gemeinde that we live together. They have a form with space for our names and signatures, and for the gemeinde to stamp confirming we live at the same address.

Has anyone done this sort of thing? I've only done standard stuff like a personal confirmation of residence, which is simply ordered online in my area, there's no option for "family living together confirmation" and I have no experience of how the gemeinde handle adhoc requests like that.

Re: Family "Wohnsitzbestätigung"

I needed a Wohnsitzbestätigung for me and my wife. I got it by going to the Gemeinde offices and showing mine and her permits. It was just one bit of paper, one fee to pay.

Re: Family "Wohnsitzbestätigung"

I've just got one here, because a fresh one was required for a bank transaction.
I phoned the "Einwohnerdienste" of the local administration and was told there was an online form to fill in. That was it. It needed a credit card payment of 20Fr. It came in the post two days later. Hopefully you can find something similar.

However, there is a warning that it is unsuitable as evidence of address for a *SBB General Abo. So check you get the right one for your particular application.

Thanks but a Wohnsitzbescheinigung is different it only confirms your Gemeinde of residence. We already have those from applying for Swissness but they don’t prove address.

Re: Family "Wohnsitzbestätigung"

as someone said above, you can get it from your gemeinde, you just give it to them to get it stamped and pay around 20 francs.
