Export from Switzerland

Household effects, wedding trousseaux, inherited property, holiday homes

It is sufficient if you present an inventory list indicating your address in Switzerland and abroad to the exportation customs office.

Private vehicles have to be declared for exportation by presenting a copy of the Swiss registration document to the customs office.

The same applies if you are resident in Switzerland and furnishing a holiday home or a second home abroad, or if you are taking household effects from Switzerland abroad.
