The Swiss authorities online
Swiss citizenship can be acquired by birth, adoption, regular or facilitated naturalisation.
There is a simplified naturalisation procedure, mainly for foreign spouses or children of Swiss citizens. Additional information can be found here.
If you are unable to obtain Swiss citizenship through facilitated naturalisation, then you must go through the regular naturalisation procedure
In all likelihood, a move will have a major impact on the naturalisation procedure. This is because each commune has a different procedure. The authorities may decide to make an exception if you decide to move to another location during the naturalisation procedure. Contact the local commune for more information.
|Commune*||Between CHF 500 and CHF 1,000 per person|
|Canton*||Up to CHF 2,000 per person|
*These fees vary significantly from one commune or canton to another and should be considered as a ballpark figure.
There may also be additional costs for residence certificate, criminal record certificate, debt registry certificate, etc. Contact the authority responsible for naturalisation for more information.
