Re: Import taxes/fees from 2019

The limit you need to bear in mind though when shopping and ordering is ordinarily 65 francs and yes 200 francs for items taxed at the lower rate.
We generally keep in mind 60 francs and then the equivalent in euro or pounds (depending on how much postage is), so that it passes through customs without any delay.


The upper limit of the goods value (incl. transport costs) for an import exempt from VAT is:

7.7% VAT (applicable to majority of all consignments) => CHF 65.00
2.5% VAT (special goods such as books) => CHF 200.00

I'm not aware of such a change.
Then there's no change at all.

Ob ein Lipgloss für 80 Rappen bei Aliexpress oder ein Lautsprecher für 80 Franken bei Amazon: Seit dem 1. Januar 2019 müssen Schweizer Konsumenten auch für internationale Online-Bestellungen unter 65 Franken die Schweizer Mehrwertsteuer bezahlen.
