Swiss Passport [Citizenship] Form Question
 
Hello, I am just looking into filling in the Swiss Passport form. There is one point I don't understand.

I have to supply various things. One of them is:

Erklärung über die Erfüllung der Einbürgerungsvoraussetzungen ab dem 12. Geburtstag

Declaration of the fulfillment of the naturalization requirements from the 12th birthday

I am applying as a single person not a family, but I am guessing I have to supply something, because it doesn't say "falls relevant"

Any idea what this actually is? Do I just have to sign an form? If so what form?

thanks

Here are the Zurich "Einbürgerungsvoraussetzungen". To apply for naturalisation, you need to provide proof that you have fulfilled each one of these.

You can read about this process, as others have done it, in this thread:
https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...ant-diary.html

Only after you have been naturalised and are a Swiss citizen, will you be eligible to apply for a Swiss passport.

Thanks, yes I mispoke, I meant citizenship, not passport.

I do meet all criteria, and the statement I asked about was taken from the actual citizenship form, which I am filling in.

Would appreciate it if anyone knows what the following means, and how you supply it (it says you have to include as a document):

Erklärung über die Erfüllung der Einbürgerungsvoraussetzungen ab dem 12. Geburtstag

Declaration of the fulfillment of the naturalization requirements from the 12th birthday

Sounds like it might be something for a child applicant. Can you post a picture of that entire section the form? I think more info is needed to understand.

Re: Swiss Passport Form Question
 
Your application will be considered only if you can tick all the boxes, so I took the list in the link I posted to be the set of criteria you must demonstrate that you fulfil. It sounds to me like you know that you fulfil the requirements, and now it's just up to you to submit the comprehensive documentation that proves that you do.

Therefore, "Erklärung", would be: "I declare that I fulfil all the critiera. Criterion 1. is shown with Document A... " and then list your stack of documents.

For example, the first criterion is that you must have a C-permit, so you would submit that, the second criterion is about how long you have lived in Switzerland, so you would submit proof obtained from every municipality in which you have been registered. The third and fourth points are about F-, N- or l-permits, so you would attach copies of any such permits you had, and so on, all the way through the list.

Maybe applicants age 12 & over have to sign the declaration that they fulfil the requirements?

Google gave me this; https://www.zh.ch/content/dam/zhweb/...ion_kinder.pdf

It's for applicants between the ages of 12-18.

As the OP isn't a child, this one is the right form I think:

Why did you use that document? Did someone gave you the wrong one?
