importing goods

Hi,

Now i'm a little about the rules of importing goods.

http://www.ezv.admin.ch/zollinfo_pri...x.html?lang=en

So if i bring goods of total value over 300 CHF, i need to pay duty 4% of the value of the goods? But i can claim the VAT (e.g. 19% in Germany) back, if i have the got a VAT reclaim form stamped?

Are there some restrictions for importing food?

Thanks,
Mari

It is the importing of personal effects that is of interest to you if you are moving here. Is this the information you were looking for?

There are restrictions on food imports, some depends on the country of origin.

Re: importing goods

Thanks, i have seen that already. I didn't mean my move to CH, but just general shopping outside CH. I think i know the VAT and duty things by now and i presume i can buy also food in Germany and bring it to CH, but only 2 litres of wine. Just checking
