Shipping from the UK to Switzerland

This is where Parcelabc excels and displays true dedication and quality. We are driven to have the best shipping solutions available on our website.

Swiss customs has few strict and important restrictions and regulations to follow if you want to avoid any confrontation with the legal operatives. They are very serious in this country, so do not try to “outmaneuver” them. Swiss Post outlines that there are simplified customs clearance for:

  • Letters which are not subject to any non-customs regulations.
  • Parcels with values up to CHF 500 which are not subject to any non-customs regulations

In addition there is standard customs clearance for:

  • Letters which are subject to any non-customs regulations.
  • Parcels with values of more than CHF 500 and items which are subject to non-customs regulations.
  • EMS courier consignments.

A quick list of items that are either forbidden or regulated:

  • Vegetable products
  • Live trees and other plants; bulbs, roots and the like; cut flowers and ornamental foliage. Plants or parts of plants infested by pests or by pathogenic agents.
  • Edible vegetables and certain roots and tubers, potatoes of non-European origin
  • Beverages, spirits and vinegar, Absinth and all imitations of absinth.
  • Explosives; pyrotechnic products; matches; pyrophoric alloys; certain combustible preparations. Ammunition and weapons
  • Products conveyance of which, by post, is prohibited.
  • Printed books, newspapers, pictures and other products of the printing industry; manuscripts, typescripts and plans
  • Propaganda material likely to endanger the internal or external security of the State. Offensive items.

 Before you ship any parcel(s) from the United Kingdom to Switzerland, make sure you understand the responsibilities we outline on our website.

Regarding any UK originated parcels, European postage experts suggest avoiding controversial items and any chemically active materials. Swiss are known their respectfulness towards the law so they will not look for any compromises if something from the prohibition or restriction list is present in the package. In general, Swiss tend to dispose the shipment if something is done wrong or not according to the rules.

Once the shipments touch down on the Swiss soil, they are inspected by officers. The level of inspection is chosen at random, but these check-ups are present because the UK is not a part of the Schengen area. If the provided documents are accurate and officers have no reason to open up the parcel, it should clear customs very quickly, but in other situations, your parcel can get opened and looked at. Be careful and follow the guidelines we describe here or contact our team directly by e-mail so you can avoid unfortunate incidents.

If the parcel is not cleared in the first level of procedure, experts take a look at it. If the contents are proven to be dangerous or a violation is found, the subsequent actions depend on the severity of the violation. It might just be a fine or your parcel might even be destroyed if there is a serious violation. If it is determined that the shipment is safe, it returns to the original route. Parcelabc recommends avoiding sending something with a hidden commercial purpose. The additional list of unwelcomed items include weapons, any dangerous liquids, animals, or propaganda type materials.
