Attention

Caution when ordering an extract from the criminal excerpt on the Internet
The Swiss Criminal Records has received increased reports of deception when ordering criminal excerpt on the Internet.

Currently, the deceptive acts take place on the following websites:
  • https://registerwegweiser.online/
  • https://www.bopayment.info/
    strafregisterauszug-schweiz
  • https://www.dienstweg.info/
    strafregisterauszug/

We point out that the Swiss criminal record excerpt can be ordered only on the website of the Federal Office of Justice: https://www.criminal-records.admin.ch or at the post office counter.

Notice delivery time
Due to the current excessive workload of the Swiss Criminal Records, a longer waiting time for the receipt of an excerpt is to be expected.
