Importing my own car from Greece

Hello to everyone,

I have just moved to Zurich and by December that I am thinking of bringing over my family from Greece. I also think of bringing my car, a Renault Megane 1.4 (model of 2001) that I own over the last 14 years. I will bring it by driving from Italy. I have already issued the green insurance card from my Greek insurance company. The car is insured till May 2016.

Could anyone tell me what paperwork I should have with me and inform about the whole process that I should follow?

Thanks in advance

Angelos

Re: Importing my own car from Greece

ch.ch has a page on "Entering Switzerland with a motor vehicle", which says:

"Entering Switzerland with a motor vehicle

Moving to Switzerland Vehicles belonging to people moving to Switzerland (that had been used for at least six months abroad) are duty free.
After you have cleared customs, you need to register your vehicle at the road traffic office in your canton of residence, except if you are only bringing it into Switzerland temporarily."
