Swiss Customs, Tax and Charges

When you send a parcel to Switzerland, no matter what it is, you’ll need to attach certain documents to your shipment. This will usually include a commercial invoice, which we will send to you, alongside any other paperwork your item needs, as soon as you complete your booking with us.

When it comes to customs tax and duty, if you’re sending a gift to a family member or friend in Switzerland, your parcel will be duty-free if it’s under the value of CHF100 (about £85). The gift must be sent from you to the recipient, not ordered directly from an online marketplace, such as Amazon or eBay, as all imports shipped from businesses have to pay additional fees. 

If you do need to pay tax or duty on your item, the standard VAT rate is 7.7% but less on certain foods and special goods such as books. You can work out exactly how much duty will be for your shipment to Switzerland during our booking process.
