Swiss citizenship: a three stage process

For anyone who has lived in Switzerland for 02 years (years between the 8th and 18th birthday count double) can submit a request for citizenship. There are ordinarily three stages:

  • Federal authorisation for naturalisation
  • Right to municipal citizenship (bourgeoisie de Bagnes)
  • Right to cantonal citizenship  (indigénat valaisan)

In Valais, naturalisation is given by the canton (cantonal service of civil status and foreigners) which coordinates the procedure.

For more information contact our integration delegate, Olivier Volluz.
