Obtaining a residence permit and Swiss citizenship

Permanent residence permit is issued after 10 years of living in the country in the status of temporary resident. Residence permit is extended every year for a 10-year period. You can reduce this time by registering a marriage with a citizen of a European country.

For children from 10 to 20 years old, each year will be counted as 2. Living in Switzerland as a permanent resident for more than 2 years gives the right to obtain Swiss citizenship. In case of marriage or family reunion, local legislation provides a simplified procedure for obtaining a residence permit with the further possibility of obtaining Swiss citizenship.

The registered marriage must be real, not fake. Migration officers monitor this fact very carefully and scrupulously. When the fake marriage situation is confirmed, the foreign citizen pays a huge fine and is deported to his home country without any delays.

Children who are born in Switzerland or who have one of their parents with Swiss citizenship have the automatic right to obtain Swiss citizenship.
