Thanks or checking.
<<"I couldn't find the requirement for Swiss residency. ">>
Good- I'll look furthre, but that is good news. I know I saw something about Swiss residence requirements...we are talking about a 1 year (or more) half fare card, right?
Like my current Halbtax (at least in functionality.)
<<"The requirements listed by the SBB are a credit/debit card, a high quality colour digital passport photo and a passport or ID card (any, I guess, they do not specify "Swiss"). ">>
That is what I have to provide now, plus a Swiss mailing address.
<<"It's quite a hassle for a tourist. I am checking with my contacts whether it can be sold in an easier way, but I don't count on anything to be honest. This is not for the masses.">>
Perhaps, but for someone who returns a few times per year, it is a reasonable option, and you can e-mail a digital photo, which have done.
