Registration of Vehicles

Registration of Vehicles

Cars and boats can be imported with their foreign registration cards and foreign plates. To be considered as part of your removal goods (and therefore duty and tax-free) a motor vehicle must have been in your possession for at least 6 months before the move.

After 12 months at the latest after import, vehicles must be provided with a Swiss vehicle registration certificate and Swiss number plates. Before licensing, the vehicle must be cleared by customs and be given a test of roadworthiness in Switzerland.
