Swiss and French legitimation cards: enhanced cooperation between the Cards Office and the Registration service from January 2022


Following the excellent cooperation put in place since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic for an optimal management of Swiss and French legitimation cards, from January 2022, the Cards Office and the Registration service will strengthen their collaboration on a more permanent basis.

From January 2022, for the submission of documents, the return and withdrawal of Swiss and French legitimation cards, members of the personnel(1) must report exclusively to the Registration service (building 55/R-001) from 1:30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The Registration service will collect and verify the legibility and compliance of the documents, ensure that the files are complete and issue, if applicable, and in particular upon return of cards, a certified true copy of said cards.

Once the documents have been sent by the Registration service to the Cards Office, the latter will process the requests with the authorities of the Host States, and remain the main point of contact for any advice or information on the various processes related to Swiss and French legitimation cards (see the relevant pages of the admin e-guide(2)).

Users (USER), Cooperation Associates (COAS) and Visiting Scientists (VISC) should continue to liaise with the Users' Office.
