Undocumented – but with rights nonetheless

SPAZ provides assistance to undocumented migrants on the following issues

  • Social- and Health Insurance
  • Educational Opportunities and Compulsory Education
  • Marriage / Family / Family Reunification
  • Residence Permit Status, Legalization
  • Working conditions
  • Questions concerning Civil Status Law

Are the consultations free of charge?

Yes! However, in case of extensive legal assistance we charge a flat-rate fee of 250 francs.


Do I have to register for the consultations?

No. Yet, there may be a longer wait due to high demand. Appointments cannot be arranged in advance.


How about privacy?

All personal information will be treated confidentially and will not be disclosed to third parties.

The SPAZ aims to improve the situation of undocumented persons overall by striving to

  • ensure undocumented persons can exercise their basic rights and can defend themselves against exploitation and fraud.
  • improve public and political awareness of the issues of undocumented persons and their precarious situation.
  • guarantee undocumented persons unrestricted access to medical aid.
  • change Swiss migration policies, so it will reflect reality and react with pragmatic solutions rather than repression and further aggravation of the legal framework.
