Registration of Swiss citizens
The Consular Section at the Embassy of Switzerland in Pakistan will be pleased to assist you at any time. Should you require additional information concerning the subjects dealt with in this website, or other subjects, please contact us by telephone or e-mail.
The following persons should register with their local Swiss mission abroad:
- Swiss citizens who intend to stay in the consular district for more than 12 months;
- Swiss citizens who acquire Swiss nationality by birth, naturalisation or adoption and who are already living in the consular district.
The register is intended to give an overall picture of Swiss nationals living in the consular district. Registration, which is obligatory, also provides the details required for the fulfilment of official functions, such as issuing new passports, registering births, marriages etc.
It is possible to register in person (Monday-Friday: 09.00-12.00 hours) or by post. In the latter case you are kindly asked to indicate your exact address so that all the necessary documentation can be sent to you. If you wish to register in person, you should bring with you your valid Swiss passports and/or ID cards as well as those of all family members; your certificate of origin (Heimatschein/acte d'origine); if possible the Family Booklet; and - for those who are subject to military service obligations - the document Leave of Absence Abroad (Auslandurlaub, congé pour l'étranger). If your Swiss documents are no longer valid please contact the Embassy to find out the procedure to be followed.
The registration form in different languages can be downloaded here. Please do not send the form to the Embassy without the above-mentioned documents.
