The ongoing situation with Covid 19 may cause shipments to Switzerland to be delayed. This is due to flight disruptions and added customs / quarantine checks.
Depending on the value and contents of your shipment, the courier may require you to fill out a Swiss Customs Declaration Form, which must be an original signed page attached to the shipment.
You may have to provide documentation including information on their move to Switzerland – job contract, flat rental or purchase information, residence permit (not usually required from EU citizens)
Shipments entering Switzerland may be selected for further inspection by the customs authority. If that happens, the shipment will be delayed for three to fourdays while the inspection process is completed.
Customs require door-to-door shipments of personal effects to be delivered to a residential address.
All shipments of personal effects (items you’ve owned for more than 6 months) must be accompanied by a detailed inventory list. This must be a detailed, itemised list. Swiss customs authorities will not accept general terms on inventory such as ‘household effects’ or ‘kitchen items’. All items need to be itemised in a comprehensive list so it is clear exactly what is being shipped.
