Hi there and thank you for your question,

I assume from your comments above that you current hold dual citizenship, South African and Swiss. That gives you certain rights, e.g. move freely into the country, vote, etc.

Why do you want to become a "permanent resident" in Switzerland? Where did you hear this concept from? Why is it important to you? Tax?

If you tell me a little more then maybe I can point you in the right direction.

Remember, for a foreigner moving to a different country, the first step is to become a permanent resident, the second step is to become a citizen. You've already done that ... so why the question?
