Switzerland is a unique country to get married in, not only because of its beautiful landscapes, but also in legal terms.
When it comes to marriage, foreigners in the country don't face too many legal restrictions.
In fact, a foreigner married to a Swiss national can become a citizen after six years of marriage if the couple lives abroad, or after only five years if living in Switzerland (from the date of marriage).
Alternatively, citizenship can be obtained by those who have been married for three years to a Swiss national and have lived in Switzerland for one year.
These include: In addition, institutions such as banks must also be notified of the name change.
According to Swiss law, foreigners marrying Swiss nationals have access to an easier path to citizenship.
Once the marriage application is approved, the couple is notified in writing.
The couple can get married anywhere between 10 days and 3 months after the approval.
