Hmmmmm ... Perhaps they have a 'length of stay' variable triggering
different levels of regulations?  Or maybe designating 'work' versus
'pleasure' triggers additional restrictions?

I spent 3 or 4 days siteseeing around Interlocken back in the late 80's.
(The ice sculptures on Jungfraujoch were in this 'weird things to do and
see in Europe' book I had at the time.  Lotta neat stuff in there.)  I'm
pretty sure I didn't have to provide any personal information,
(financial or otherwise), for that trip.

"Locals" rule!   ;-)
