Learn more about importing cars to Sweden.

If you are a tourist, you can import the car without documents only if it’s for your personal use. The authorities will need proof that you are resident from abroad. You can import the car tax- free on a temporary basis but you need to apply for duty-free customs plates. Additionally, you wouldn’t have to register the car at the road traffic office. However, you need to declare it at a manned border crossing. Furthermore, you need to undergo a specific technical test as you enter the car. The duty is usually around 4% of the vehicle’s value which is appraised by the local authorities.

Switzerland is located in the heart of Europe and it has well planned transportation system which connects it to other countries around. Shipping a car there isn’t a trouble if you are from the U.S. You need to establish residence if you want to duty free import, and you have to provide evidence that you owned it for at least the last 6 months. Additionally, you need to clear customs and to register the car at the road traffic office afterwards.

Required Documentation

As per the requirements of U. S Customs and Border Protection Agency and the Swiss Customs Administration, there are reasons for validation and verification of the vehicle that is being exported/ imported. And that is why you need to submit these documents:

  • Driver’s license
  • Insurance proof
  • Bill of lading
  • Passport
  • Invoice of purchase
  • Residency permit
  • Inspection document
  • Form 18.44 from the customs

Now, it’s also important to understand that Switzerland has the safest road network in the entire Europe and it has terrific public transportation. You need to be 18 years old to drive motorbikes or cars and 21 if you want to drive a bus. You can use your national driver’s license for the first 12 months of staying in the country. After this time goes through, you will have to exchange it for a local one. You can visit the website of the officials for further information. What is more, you can always contact the Swiss embassy in Washington, DC, should you feel the need to get a bit more additional information.

You also need to choose a shipping method before A-1 Auto Transport can give you an accurate shipping quote.  You can use either RORO or container shipping. If you don’t need to transport any personal belongings, RORO is a good option as it’s cheap and quick. However, if you need to get other items with you or you want a more secure means of shipping, container shipping is better. It is also more expensive and slower because it goes through additional checkpoints, which would burden the process.
