Addresses and opening hours of customs offices and border crossing points

Opening hours of customs offices

The most important Swiss border crossing points are manned 24/7. Many small border crossing points are manned at specific times, and some are not manned at all.

Written self-declaration with declaration boxes

If no border guards are present, you may declare private goods in writing, using the declaration boxes (however, only for goods that are not subject to quantitative restrictions or bans and that do not require a certificate or authorisation). The invoice for the import duties will be sent to you by post later on.

The Custom’s Administration’s app provides members of the public with information on the most important formalities, e.g. whether you have to declare goods or not. If you have to pay customs duty on the goods, you can do this directly with the app. You can import goods that have been declared in this way via any border crossing point in Switzerland.
