What are the Swiss customs rules?

Because Switzerland are not part of the EU, shipments from all origins must clear customs as normal. There is no low value exemption from duties and taxes in Switzerland, but if you are sending a gift that is worth less than 100 francs, charges will not be applied during clearance. Be sure to make it clear that parcel contains a gift, and include a full declaration of its contents. Don’t worry about your customs paperwork – ParcelHero takes care of that for you.

Are there any restricted goods in Switzerland?

Though Switzerland welcomes imports, there are rules about exactly what you are allowed to send to the country. Don’t worry – many of them are similar to ParcelHero’s own rules about Prohibited and Restricted items. For a more specific list, visit Switzerland’s customs website.

Can I send Swiss cheese to the UK?

Doing business in Switzerland

Thanks to the close location and familiar legal styles, Switzerland is a popular destination for UK businesses. Perhaps it is no surprise then that trade between the UK and Switzerland is worth over £31.9 billion a year. Some of the leading exports from the UK to Switzerland include:

  • machines, engines, pumps
  • pharmaceuticals
  • medical, technical equipment
  • metals

With trade between the UK and Switzerland growing by more than 130% in the last five years, there’s plenty of opportunity even if your own goods are not on that list, so don’t panic. For more information on these and other export opportunities, visit the UK Government’s Export Guide, or our government partner Exporting is Great.

Addressing a parcel to Switzerland

The address is important when shipping internationally, as we can’t deliver your parcel if we don’t know where it is going. The address should include:

  • Mr. John Smith [The name of the recipient]
  • Tastentanzenstrasse 5/16 [street name + building-number/apartment-number]
  • 1234 [postal code]
  • Geneva [city]
  • SWITZERLAND [country name]

If a letter has two döts (ö), then you can substitute an e after the letter for the dots. Switzerland uses a four-digit postcode system, where the digits are sorted by route, from north to south.

Sending gifts to Switzerland

Regardless of what holidays you celebrate, there’s always a reason to give a gift to someone special. When you’re shipping one to Switzerland, keep in mind that our partner couriers only deliver on normal working days. If you’re sending a gift for a specific date, plan for it potentially take a few extra days.
