Maybe you should contact the town hall that you were registered with to explain the circumstances and let them know why you didnt de-register yourself.

If you give them a forwarding address then it would mean that they can contact you there if the SBB take it further with a claim for the money allowing you to pay it. If you dont, it could mean that you get registered in debt in switzerland without even knowing it.
Yeah i got exactly what u mean and i think its very wise suggestion but could you tell me how can i find contact for this town hall in Luango . ?

Re: I got ticket for Bus!

This post looks very much a repeat of one last year concerning an unpaid inetrnet bill! Did you pay that one or are you still on the run?

Does it make sense after one year contact town hall for de-registration , and for that ticket what if i contact SBB directly and speak with them.?
Of course it does, otherwise you are still thought to be living here.

You can try SBB, they may be able to give you a contact number of the appropriate bus company. If not you will need to search it yourself, try google

FFS. Tupac every city, town and village of Switzerland has its name registered with ".ch". Why don't you try that as a starting point.

Seriously. Some people.

Re: I got ticket for Bus!

TPL, in particular this:

"Pagamento immediato della soprattassa
L’utente sprovvisto di un titolo di trasporto valido, č tenuto al pagamento di una soprattassa che ammonta a Fr. 80.-- (incluso il prezzo della corsa), importo che viene ridotto a Fr. 60.-- se viene pagata subito in contanti all’addetto al controllo, considerato che si risparmiano le spese amministrative di incasso.

Pagamento non immediato della soprattassa
L’utente sprovvisto di un titolo di trasporto valido che non č in grado o decide di non pagare immediatamente la soprattassa, č obbligato a fornire i suoi dati personali per l’invio al suo domicilio della stessa.
L’importo da pagare č di Fr. 80.-- e il termine di pagamento č di 30 giorni dalla data di ricezione della lettera.
Scaduto questo termine, l’utente riceve una seconda lettera, con un importo maggiorato di Fr. 50.-- (Fr. 20.-- tassa amministrativa + Fr. 30.-- per pratiche amministrative = Fr. 130.--), e con un nuovo termine di pagamento di 30 giorni.
Scaduto anche questo termine la TPL procede alla denuncia alla Procura pubblica, aggiungendo un ulteriore importo per pratiche amministrative di Fr. 50.-- (totale Fr. 180.--)."

So, expect it to be at least CHF 180 now.

You will go directly to jail and not pass go or collect your 200$...

Seriously: Can you explain me once again why it is impossible for the Swiss to contact you?

I left Switzerland last year and the Zurich police had absolutely no problem to send me a speeding fine after I arrived in Asia. The time and place of the ticket shows me that I was driving three hours before my plane left to the road authorities to hand back my registration plate!

In short: Looks like you did not deregister. So a simple check list: Are you sure you cancelled your mobile phone? Land line? Cable TV? Health insurance?... whoever else might send you a bill?

If you did not, they will continue to send bills to your old address. If you do not pay those bills will they end up in the Swiss small claims system (No idea what Betreibung is called in Italian). So once you go back to Switzerland, you are in for a whole lot of fines and payments...

You posted the first one in January, and the fine was 70F.

You post the same thing in April and the fine is gone down to 60F.

You should keep on posting, it will cancel itself in no time.


And why, oh why, are you asking the same question, when st2lemans gave you the answer 3 months ago ?

Re: i got a fine by Public BUS in my last day in Switzerland?

I just want to say thanks to Tupac, this thread reminded me that I had left my bus pass in my coat pocket which I had just put away in the wardrobe.
Thanks, you saved me a 70 CHF fine (or was it a 60 CHF fine?)

From personal experience I thought the initial fine was a standard 80chf. Is that also what it says in the reply from st2lemons?


Tupac, have you actually followed up on the advice that has been given re deregistering, thus giving a forwarding address for the local authority to use if they want to? Even if you send it to "The Rathaus" , adding the town and Switzerland, at the bottom of the letter, I think it is likely to reach the correct destination.

If, at the same time, you mention your problem regarding the supposed outstanding fine, I am sure they will be able to give you the correct useful advice.

If your German is as coherent as your English posts, you're going to want someone else to send another email for you.

But don't worry. The worst you'll get is a little time in Lichtenstein. It's like the Swiss version of Guantanamo, but .... different.

Re: i got a fine by Public BUS in my last day in Switzerland?

just don't come back, problem solved.

is this to go with your gambling debts and as you have not unregistered properly your other bills adding up.

email just doesn't cut it. Registered letter if anything......but you're not going to want to take the chance to come back........

Now where did Liechtenstein come from? Also why do others answer about the SBB when he said Bus? It's like the game we played in kindergarden where you say one thing and I repeat it to the next kid.. in the end it's something completely different. And what about his English.. there's several kinds of English, not everybody writes proper Britist English. I sure don't and with only a high school education probably my America English isn't so great either. Might be why everyone i usually meet don't like Americans as so many are rude, even to each other.
