Animals and animal products

Animals and animal products from third countries (countries other than EU states, Iceland, Northern Ireland and Norway) must be subject to border veterinary inspection before or at the time of importation into Switzerland. This inspection takes place upon initial entry into the joint veterinary area of the EU and can therefore be carried out also at EU border inspection offices.

Competent customs offices

Animals and animal products which you wish to import directly from third countries into the Swiss customs territory can be declared only at the Geneva airport and Zurich airport customs offices.

Other animals and animal products can be declared at all customs offices indicated accordingly under point 2 in the document ad D-107 below.
