The adoption of your child must be reported to your Swiss representation abroad so that the data in the various Swiss registers can be updated.

The civil status authority in Switzerland is responsible for recognising the adoption according to Swiss law and for entering the corresponding information in the Swiss civil status register. Your Swiss representation will enter the information in the Register of the Swiss Abroad.

In order to do so, your representation needs certain documents from you.
