Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

Step 1.

Attached are the forms you get from the Migration Office. Since this is a Federal process, I requested these forms (attached) from this page using the email address on the page.

This is not a Q&A thread. If you fail to heed that, I will remove your post.

If you have been through the process, feel free to post your experiences - do note that your contribution may at some point be merged into a Wiki-like document so that others can benefit from our experiences.

A point to note of course is do not print and use these documents yourself - request your own!

Thanks Lob, I was actually going to do the same as I received my documents at the end of last week.

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

Thanks Lob

This will come in handy in October - but at least I can have a look at them now and see what is required.

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

small hiccup on my side for this which I need to check into - on the date I married, my missus only had a dodgy passport and not a Swiss one. I will contact the head honchos in Bern to see if being in the process and that process being approved will count for me otherwise I am not entitled - and I ain't paying the large amount for it (even though I qualify several times over now with my time here plus my wife's time here counting for me).

Bummer

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

Maybe the law has changed so much that this document doesn't even exist any more.

When an official link doesn't work, one can often remove part of the address, click on that, and work ones way through the info from there.
http://www.bfm.admin.ch/bfm/en/home.html

Try this bit.

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

Yes, I did that yesterday and after awhile finally came to the page regarding facilitated naturalization in English. It's here for anyone else interested.

The page is useful, but sadly not the forms promised in the OP. Perhaps they are no longer available online. They suggest one contacts the office by email.

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

Dear all,
I have started my application last july and submitted all the paperwork(tax returns statement etc.) sometime in june 2012. Also a small interview with the local communal authorites but no police visits.

The last week I received a letter with two forms included. Basically they wanted a signed statement that:

- I'd not done anything illegal during the last 10 years in Switzerland
- That my marriage isn't a sham with the end result being a passport.

I send this documents yesterday and waiting with my finger crossed.

Can anyone let me know, how far I'm in my faciliated naturalisation process? FYI, I'm living in Canton Neuchâtel..

Thanks

regards

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

Where do you start with getting the documents for facilitated naturalisation?

Do you request the paperwork from Bern? Or from your Gemeinde?

*As already said, the above link doesn't work anymore and website doesn't give info about requesting paperwork.

In Canton Aargau the application forms for facilitated naturalization can be obtained from the Gemeinde. The forms are then to be sent to Bern:

From Bern. The cantons might have some sort of referral process to get you there, but why go through them when the feds have to be involved anyway?

This e-mail is current as of last week. I looked online and found the address, and sent a message. I received my application packet a day later:

einbuergerung@bfm.admin.ch

I recommend sending your email in German (or French or Italian). Can't hurt to start proving your integration, right?

Thanks for that ... yes would rather cut out the Gemeinde as much as possible.

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

Do they require a lot of documentation with the initial application form?

I didn't read the whole PDF, but you don't need all the stuff in it. The packet I received is nowhere near 45 pages long!

Edit - Then again, maybe the questionnaire comes later after all the other stuff has been sent...that would not surprise me at all.

I hope it's not too difficult to get everything they want!

I can't apply for a few months yet.... getting impatient!

The preliminary stuff in my packet is pretty easy. However a quick glance at the big PDF warns me I might need another birth certificate less than 6 months old

Re: Facilitated Naturalisation - Documents and process

For those of you who have been through the process, how long did it take (from sending in the forms to approval)?

Thanks for sharing!

I recently submitted the application packet. About 10 days later I received an acknowledgement letter from SEM saying they have received my application. The letter basically says they are drowning in applications and it could take 1.5 years or longer depending on canton and municipality workloads. It also clearly says something along the lines of "don't call us, we'll call you" for updates, and asks me to submit any requests or additional information in writing.

I'd guess the workload is extra high right now with folks trying to get in the queue before the laws change in 2016.
