The Swiss authorities online
There are no specific customs regulations relating to the personal goods of persons leaving Switzerland. No export duties need to be paid to the Swiss authorities.
Check with the relevant authorities before travelling abroad whether any bans or restrictions are in place, or whether permits are required, for example, with regard to animals, species protection, weapons, cultural property, etc.
Import regulations vary from country to country. For more information, contact the customs officials of the relevant country.
When leaving Switzerland with a vehicle, you need to declare it at a customs office for assessment of export duties.
Persons who live outside of Switzerland may request a refund of the taxes they paid on goods (tax free). To qualify for a refund, goods purchased must have a minimum value of CHF 300.
For information on the conditions governing tax exemption and on the necessary documents, go to the website of the Federal Tax Administration.
