Switzerland bans citizenship to anyone who has lived on welfare in the country in the previous three years unless they pay back the money they received, by Julian Robinson.

The new legislation also requires applicants to prove a greater level of integration if their bid is to be successful, according to Kronen Zeitung.

As part of the new criteria they must show they have ‘cultivated contacts’ with a number of Swiss people.

Not so hard to do.
