Residence title; Application for an electronic residence title

The residence permit, the permanent settlement permit, the permit for "long-term residence - EC" and the EU Blue Card as well as the residence card and the permanent residence card have since September 1st, 2011, in most cases been issued in the form of an electronic residence title (eAT). The residence permit for Swiss nationals and their family members will upon application be issued in the form of an electronic residence title.

Description

In cases where a legitimate interest exists, the residence title issued in the form of an adhesive sticker in the foreign national's passport may, upon application with the competent Aliens Department, be replaced by an electronic residence title. The previous residence titles entered in passports or substitute documents in lieu of passports will remain valid no longer than August 31st, 2021, at the latest.

The electronic residence title is a plastic card in credit card format. It contains a contactless chip inside the card on which personal data, biometric characteristics (photo and two fingerprints) and, where applicable, auxiliary conditions (requirements) are memorized. In addition, the chip offers the option of being used as an electronic proof of identity and for a qualified electronic signature.

For detailed information on the card's electronic use (e. g. on-line identity card function; signature function) please go to the website of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) (see "Related Links").

Fees
