Would you like your club to be recognized by the OSA and so to become part of the network of the Swiss abroad?


The conditions are set out in the directives on the recognition of new groups and associations abroad.


Please complete the application form for recognition of Swiss groups abroad and return it to us together with the bylaws of your association.


Important: in the countries in which an umbrella association exists, Swiss clubs must have been acknowledged beforehand by that association.


Recognition by the OSA entitles your association to take part in the election of the delegates from your country of residence to the Council of the Swiss Abroad. You will also benefit from regular information provided by the OSA. Please find alle advantages of the recognition in this flyer (in German).
