Moving cantons (Luzern to Vaud)

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to get information about a move within Switzerland, but couldn't find much.

I'm Italian, I hold a B permit, and a full-time job in Luzern since 2018. I will remain working for the same company (which is based in Luzern) but I will reside in Vaud.

I believe what i need to do is inform Kanton Luzern that I'm moving out, and inform Vaud that I'm moving to their Canton. Also, probably i need to inform my health insurance, bank, etc.

I was wondering if I'm missing something, and if I could experience any obstacles in this move of Cantons.

I would appreciate if someone can provide any tips og guidance.

Remember to inform the post office as well.

You can easily change your address online: https://www.post.ch/en/receiving-mai...ith-forwarding

If you have a car, you will have to change plates.

Re: Moving cantons (Luzern to Vaud)

I've moved from GE to VD and again within VD.. The process was really the same..
Inform the commune of the departure, fill in a form and get a copy.. You have officially two weeks to register at the new commune when you arrive.. One move i forgot and didn't register for about 4 weeks, no drama.

Logistically, permits will be re-issued with new address printed.. You can fill in a form online with the post and they will inform most of your contacts automagically .. Insurance, bank etc.. Redirect the mail and watch letters that arrive, if they have been redirected then that company/person needs to be told the new address .. Change the plates on the car the office des autos, hand back old one, get new one.

Insurances may go up or down .. But it's all really pretty easy, mostly done online.

In changing Kantons with a B permit, within feudalist CH, the foreign police in the new Kanton must be contacted and a new permit issued.

Re: Moving cantons (Luzern to Vaud)

Another question, I might sublease an apartment in Vaud for the first few months until I find a place for the long-term.

Would that be a problem when proving my new address in Vaud? I presume i should be OK if i show a sublease contract?

Many thanks everyone for your help!
