You have chosen to live abroad. Swiss representations abroad (embassy or consulate) will be your first point of contact for all administrative matters (registration, passport, civil status, voting rights, etc.) and when you find yourself in difficulty.
You have elected residence in the consular district of the Swiss representation of this country. Regular contact between Swiss expatriates and the relevant Swiss representation can be very useful for both parties. Registration is mandatory for all Swiss citizens domiciled abroad. A register of the Swiss abroad is maintained for this purpose.
On these webpages you will find information on registration of the Swiss abroad, reporting a change of address, and returning to Switzerland.
