Imposition of tradable goods for final importation
Marketable goods are goods intended for resale or commercial use, including at the traveler’s business.
Goods intended for final import into the Swiss customs territory must be presented to a Swiss customs office and declared for customs processing in writing or electronically. In addition to the correctly filled out import declaration, the below-mentioned escort documents must be delivered.
First and foremost, those who transport the goods (carriers of the goods) or cause them to be transported across the border (importers, consignees, consignors, principals) are persons subject to the declaration obligation and thus customs debtors.
Imposition of tradable goods can be made only at certain customs offices and during office hours (see “Opening hours and addresses of customs offices”).
Carriers provide corresponding services pursuant to the Incoterms in force.
