From Switzerland to abroad and vice versa
Every day, Swiss Post transports thousands of consignments across the Swiss border, both out of Switzerland and into Switzerland from abroad. Each of these consignments is checked without exception by the customs authorities in both the country of origin and the country of destination. To ensure that your consignments can be quickly processed and passed on by customs authorities, all the necessary documents and forms must be completed fully and correctly.
Customs clearance can be carried out either by the customs authorities (official customs clearance) or by professional customs clearance officers (commercial customs clearance). The customs authorities in the country of destination are authorized to double-check the customs clearance at any time, regardless of which customs clearance model it is based on. From country to country, different non-Swiss Post import levies such as turnover tax and/or customs duties may be charged for a consignment. Country-specific fees may also be incurred.
