Import your vehicle.

If you are coming to Basel to stay for a while, you may want to import your vehicle to the country so you can drive around on your own. You will need to ensure that all the paperwork is handled in a timely manner. You will need to specify that your vehicle will be used for personal reasons only. You will need to show a lot of proof that your vehicle is yours and it doesn't violate any of their laws. You will need to start your application in order to gain a plate to put on your vehicle once you arrive.

If you are visiting here or don't have time to stay, you won't have to register your vehicle. You are required to verify your vehicle at a border crossing. All vehicles imported will receive detailed testing at the Cantonal Traffic Office. This will be performed prior to you being able to drive it. Since Switzerland is very environmentally friendly, your car will be given an anti-pollution test.

Temporary import.

You will need to prove to the Swiss Customs authorities that you are only there as a tourist and are there short term. If you plan to extend your stay, you will need to import the car to Zurich. You won't need to pay your custom duties there but you will need to apply for a license plate that is customized and duty free. You will need to declare your car at the border. While there, your vehicle will go through the anti-pollution test as well as the technical test. You cannot drive your vehicle to Zurich until this is complete.

You can expect to pay Swiss authorities about CHF 25 and have the Form 1530 completed. This form is for those who are foreign students, interns, and expatriates who are using their personal vehicles in this country for no more than two years. There will be no duty paid. If you are made to pay duty, it will be added at a rate of 4% of the total value of your car, market value. The appropriate information can be found at the Swiss Customs Administration. You can find information about the duties there as well as import regulations and requirements. A1 Auto Transport Service will assist you with all the details about shipping your vehicle overseas to Switzerland. You will be able to select two shipping methods; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping.

Swiss traffic regulations.

It's important to remember that driving in Switzerland is different in the United States. For example, Switzerland is well known for it is great public transport system owning the safest roads in Europe. You must be at least eighteen years of age to drive cars or motorbikes. To drive a bus, you must be twenty-one years old.Β You can use your U.S driver's license for the first twelve months of staying in Basel, and driving however after the twelve months are up, you will need to obtain a Switzerland driver's license instead.
