Ship Car To Lugano
πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­ Switzerland, (CH)

Bordering Italy, the Swiss city of Lugano is a city in southern Switzerland. It is the third financial center of Switzerland and thereby attracts expats from all over the world to call it home.

However, the pristine beauty of the city and canton makes it a sought after destination for international tourists. But commuting in your own vehicle surpasses the expensive public transportation.

Temporary permit for import.

As a tourist, you can easily get your car imported, provided you do it for your own use. The Swiss Customs Administration is going to require significant proof for this. However, if you plan to import it permanently, you’d need to apply for customs plates under tax exemptions, if you want to avoid paying taxes.

Tourists, as well as others that come temporarily and bring their vehicles, don’t need to report to any road traffic office. However, you have to declare the car when passing the border. Any vehicles that are imported into Switzerland have to undergo the main technical test at the traffic office. This has to be done before you start driving in the city of Lugano. You have to undergo an anti-pollution test as well because Switzerland is likely to be one of the most environmentally conscious countries in Europe.

However, the authorities in Switzerland are going to require serious proof that shows your short-term intentions. If you intend to visit Lugano for a longer period, you can still import your car without paying fees but you have to apply for custom duty-free license plates before that. You are going to have to get it declared prior to that and it has to undergo a special anti-pollution test at the local traffic authority. This has to be completed before you are involved in the traffic in Switzerland.

The authorization costs about 25 CHF and you are going to have to fill a 15.30 form which is applicable for students, expatriates and other interns that need the car for personal use for no longer than 2 years. The added duty is about 4% of the market value of your vehicle. The Swiss Customs Administration is going to have the required information so contacting them might be a good idea. You can also consult the A1 Auto Transport service for the details to shipping your car to Switzerland. You can choose between two shipping methods – RORO and Container shipping. The laws of the Lugano subject imported cars to a duty of about 4% of the value of the vehicle.

Drive in Switzerland.

The Lugano has perfect public transport as well as the safest traffic in Europe. You have to be 18 years old to be allowed to drive but if you intend to be driving a bus you have to be 21 years old. If you are from the U.S. you can use your national driving license for the first 12 months and after that, you’d have to exchange it for a national one. If you need any further information you can always contact the Switzerland Embassy in Washington, DC.
