Swiss law requires you to register at your local immigration office within a few days of your arrival. A relocation consultant can accompany you and make the entire process smoother.
Your relocation consultant has total fluency in the local language. This avoids any confusion during discussions with the immigration agent, and minimises the risk of not being able to complete the registration in due time.
Your relocation consultant fully understands the registration process, so there will be no surprises and no time lost.
All steps of the registration will be thoroughly followed.
Valid ID or passports of each family member.
Birth certificates of children.
Marriage certificate or decree absolute (if applicable).
May need certified translation if from a non-EU country.
Residential lease contract.
Work contract or confirmation of admission to higher education institutions.
For non-EU/EFTA citizens: police record from your home country, work permit and entry visa.
For non-EU/EFTA dependents only: Certificate proving competence in the local language of Level A1 at a minimum, or proof of registration in a language course with this qualification as its goal.
