For tourists/temporary stay.

If you are importing your vehicle duty-free for personal use, even as a tourist, you can do it without custom duty but the Swiss authorities will need:

  • proof of residence abroad.
  • vehicle/car ownership proof.
  • identity proof/passport.

You will need to apply for duty free license plates at the custom authorities before you are declared eligible. However, there are some important documents that you will need to carry irrespective of whether you have to pay or not have to pay custom duties. These include:

  • Original car title deed.
  • Insurance documents and certificate.
  • Social security card.
  • Passport.
  • Permits – travel/work.
  • Bill of Lading.

In case you do not qualify for the free entry, the custom duty is about 4% of the total value of the car as calculated by the Swiss authorities. You might need to look up Swiss Customs Administration to get the latest on the regulations or we can help you with the calculation of the levies as per current rules.

Ship Your Car Bern

Shipping modes.

There are two basic methods through which the vehicles are transported through ocean bound freight shipping. These are RORO and container shipping. It is cheaper to send by RORO as the car is driven on the deck and driven off at the port of delivery. However, if you ship through container shipping, your vehicle can be secured and the rest of the container can carry your personal goods that you need transported. It will be sealed and delivered at the Swiss port.

Driving in Switzerland.

You will need your International driver’s license for the first year and later if you stay on, you will need to apply for the local Bern driver’s license. For driving personal cars or vans, you need to be at least 18 years old but if you are going to drive a bus or commercial vehicles, you will have to be 21 years old. To get all the current details about importing and driving in Bern, you can contact the Embassy of Switzerland in USA.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
