Specific Regulations

There are now thousands of Italian citizens accustomed to reach Swiss territory on a daily basis for work reasons. Others, instead, have crossed the borders choosing to reside in Switzerland permanently. This is not to mention the companies in our country that maintain relations with some Swiss realities, exchanging goods or establishing collaborations. Despite its proximity to Italy and the fact that it is part of the European continent, Switzerland is not a member of the European Community. Consequently, anyone who has to ship to Switzerland for personal or commercial reasons must comply with the rules for sending goods and merchandise to non-EU countries. Every shipment, therefore, is subject to customs controls and related customs clearance operations. This, in addition to requiring the preparation of certain documents, leads to the payment of taxes and duties. By turning to europacco you can benefit from a fast and reliable shipping service. Europacco is the best way to send products, documents or business items, suitcases or souvenirs to Switzerland, with all the convenience of an online service.

How do customs duties work in Switzerland

Speaking of duties and customs charges means referring not only to the customs cost in the proper sense, but also to import VAT, excise duties and administrative costs. Moreover, the calculation of duties is linked to several factors including the type of goods shipped, value of goods and purpose of the shipment. It is important to point out that some products, under a maximum limit decided by Swiss Customs itself, can be imported without added duties. There is also a minimum limit to the amount of duty which, for goods coming from Italy, is equal to 5 CHF. Speaking of customs clearance, goods sent from Italy (and from countries such as France and Germany), involve the payment of a basic tax of 11.5 Swiss francs, to which must be added a fee of 3% of the value of the goods subject to VAT. Some types of goods (from alcohol to costume jewelry) face higher customs fees.

Gifts and duties

A private individual who decides to send a gift to a friend or relative residing in Switzerland can benefit from tax exemption, if the value of the goods sent does not exceed 100 Swiss francs. When calculating the value, transport costs are not taken into account. Shipments with a value below 300 CHF are exempt from VAT. For all other shipments exceeding this value, the Swiss customs will request the payment of VAT.

What is not possible to ship to Switzerland

As in the case of many other countries that require customs clearance of shipments, Switzerland prohibits the importation of certain goods, and allows others only with prior authorization. Goods such as:

  • Weapons and explosives
  • Therapeutic products and products on the doping list
  • Narcotic drugs and medicines containing narcotic substances
  • Articles containing illegal depictions of pornography or cruel violence
  • Radar detectors
  • Counterfeit items
  • Pirated copies of electronic data carriers
  • Animals
  • Cultural items

Couriers, for their part, are free not to accept shipments of goods even if they are not on this list.

Exporting goods to Switzerland: documents required

In addition to the Free Export Declaration and the commercial or proforma invoice, additional documents are required depending on the type of goods shipped:

  • EUR 1" and "EURMed" certificate
  • Certificate of origin
  • health certificate; in case of animal products in general
  • phytosanitary certificate

The EUR 1 certificate, in particular, certifies that the goods to be sent are of European origin, allowing them to enjoy the preferential treatment established by the existing international agreements between the European Union and Switzerland.

Commercial Invoice and Free Export Declaration

The pro-forma or commercial invoice is a document whose role is to specify the nature and quantity of the goods being shipped. This document is required even if the shipment is not related to a real sale or purchase.

The Declaration of Free Export, instead, is a document that allows the shipper to know the feasibility of transit of the chosen goods. In practice, once the document is filled out, the declaration relieves the couriers of any liability arising from the export of prohibited goods, or goods subject to prior requests, to Switzerland.

How to pack gifts to be shipped

Despite the attention that europacco dedicates to shipping and to the choice of couriers to whom it entrusts packages, to be sure that what is sent to Switzerland arrives at its destination perfectly intact, it is essential to pay the right attention to packaging. A good idea is to use rigid boxes, strong to the touch and characterized by resistant flaps. When the shipment concerns several goods placed in the same box, it is advisable to pack them one by one. If the number of items or their shape does not allow the complete filling of the box, the empty spaces should be filled with appropriate material (polystyrene chips, foam cushions, etc.). The box should then be sealed with shipping tape, remembering to attach the waybill to the outside.
