40 km/h too fast – Frenchman not naturalised

A Frenchman who has lived in Switzerland for 40 years does not get a Swiss passport. The reason: instead of 80 km/h, the Frenchman drove past a construction site at 120 km/h. Now it is said that he was “not successfully integrated”.

The Federal Administrative Court made a tough decision on the naturalization of a French citizen.

A Frenchman who has lived in Switzerland for around 40 years and owns various luxury hotels and private clinics here will not be naturalised. Because the man drove through a construction site in 2017 at a speed of 80 instead of the signaled 40 kilometers per hour, the federal government was allowed to reject his request. This was decided by the Federal Administrative Court in St. Gallen.

The man is socially integrated in Switzerland, a successful businessman and has a three-digit million fortune. Nevertheless, the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) was allowed to reject his application for naturalization made in 2018.
