The status of subsidiary protection does not exist in Switzerland as the Qualification Directive is not applicable. Regarding the application of Article 9 of the Dublin III Regulation, the term “international protection” includes the temporary admission status in cases in which the status is granted on the ground that the removal is either contrary to international law or not reasonable because of a situation of war or generalised violence (but not a temporary admission based on medical grounds).
The Chapter: Content of International Protection in Switzerland contains sections on:
A. Status and residence
- Residence permit
- Civil registration
- Long-term residence
- Cessation and review and protection status
- Withdrawal of protection status
