Civil register as single foreigner not born in Switzerland

Dear all,

I was hoping you could help me understand whether my interpretation of the below is correct:

Art. 15a Abs. 2 Aufnahme in das Personenstandsregister

Quote:
2. Eine ausländische Person, deren Daten nicht abrufbar sind, wird spätestens dann in das Personenstandsregister aufgenommen, wenn sie von einem in der Schweiz zu beurkundenden Zivilstandsereignis betroffen ist.
And also:

Fachprozess EAZW

Quote:
1 Grundsätze
1.1 Zweckgebundenheit
Eine ausländische Person, deren Daten über den Personenstand im System nicht abrufbar sind, muss in begründeten Fällen in das Personenstandsregister aufgenommen werden (Art. 15a Abs. 2 ZStV).
Do you interpret is as:
  1. Nothing stops foreigners registering before a civil status event but if they are affected by a civil status event that must be registered in Switzerland, then they must be registered, i.e. the above text covers the instances when it becomes obligatory or
  2. They may only be registered if they are affected by a civil status event that must be registered in Switzerland

The wird spätestens dann part makes me doubt and I was wondering whether I may ask to be registered as a single foreigner that was not born in Switzerland.

Thanks a lot!

I don’t really understand your question. But I never did more than tick the Ledig box on my permit application (before I married a Swissie).

Re: Civil register as single foreigner not born in Switzerland

My understanding is that you can register in the Zivilsztandregister at any time you like, but as it costs money and is hassle, it really only makes sense to do so when you have a reason that requires it.

Without such a reason there is absolutely no requirement to register.

Bear in mind that your certificate has a validity that expires, and it costs money to get a new certificate.

So that's not something you want to be doing just because you like to have a piece of paper, that with the exception of a very narrow range of circumstances, nobody is ever going to ask to see..

Re: Civil register as single foreigner not born in Switzerland

Just in case you are about to start the naturalization process, you must register in the Zivilstandamt before you submit your application. Otherwise it will be returned to you immediately.
