fide LAUSANNE

Your language passport

fide lausanne

The fide test(Français, Italiano, Deutsch En Suisse) is a language test that separately verifies and certifies oral and written language skills, and is recognized for immigration and naturalization procedures.

Candidates register at an accredited center and take the oral test a few days before the written test. The tests are then sent for correction to the fide Secretariat in Berne, which then issues a “language passport” certifying the candidate’s level.

The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) recommends this test as part of the naturalization procedure and for obtaining a residence or settlement permit. It is also possible to have your language certificates recognized through the “dossier fide” procedure.

What you need to know

The fide test begins with an official convocation. Depending on the type of license applied for or to be renewed, the candidate will have to take an oral or written test, or both, at an accredited center. The oral test, which precedes the written test, lasts 40 minutes, divided into two 20-minute parts.

At VOXEA, the oral test can be taken on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. The written test lasts one hour, preceded by a 15-minute presentation. This written test can be taken on Saturday afternoons only at 2pm. At the end of the test, the papers are sent for correction to the fide Secretariat in Bern, which sends the language passport directly to the candidates.

Frequently asked questions

In principle, all recognized language certificates and language passports are valid for life. If a certificate is several years old and the authorities have doubts about the current language level, you may be asked to undergo a new assessment.

It can take up to four weeks before you receive your results. Unfortunately, the fide secretariat cannot speed up this process. You can request an extension from your local authority, the relevant cantonal authority or the State Secretariat for Migration.

In principle, course certificates are not language certificates and are therefore not recognized as language certificates. Depending on your level, you can take a fide test or a language certificate recognized by the SEM. The “dossier fide” procedure also allows you to have your language skills assessed at B1 level.

The fide test (Français, Italiano, Deutsch) assesses your ability to speak, understand, read and write one of Switzerland’s three national languages. It is organized by the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) in several centers, including Lausanne Centre.

In certain situations, passing this test is a prerequisite for obtaining or renewing a residence permit in Switzerland. This is the case for :

  • foreign spouses of Swiss citizens or holders of a permanent residence permit
  • holders of a residence permit requesting an extension
  • foreign children over the age of 12 joining their parents in Switzerland

The fide test verifies that you have a minimum level of proficiency in the national language spoken in your place of residence, to facilitate your integration and everyday life in Switzerland.

Passing this official test proves your basic language skills for :

  • Communicate and interact in simple situations
  • Understand and make yourself understood at work and with the administration
