Refund of foreign VAT

When bringing goods purchased abroad to Switzerland is there a refund of foreign VAT (applies to persons who live in Switzerland)?

Refund of foreign VAT to private individuals

The Swiss Customs Administration cannot refund your foreign VAT. If you are personally bringing goods purchased abroad to Switzerland, you often have the option of having the foreign VAT refunded by the foreign seller or a tax refund company.
