Roast lamb for us this year! If you live in Geneva, just go to France on Monday to get your turkey, much safer and not much more expensive, and if 2 of you in the car = 7kg.
Lamb is read meat, and therefore subject to the 500g per person, duty free limit. So if 2 in the car,... it means a 1kg joint, NOT 7kg ! - Unless you plan on paying the CHF 20 / kg duty. Incidentally, if you declare if, you pay for the full 7kg, and not only for 6kg, so it would cost you CHF 140 in duty to bring a 7kg joint to CH.

Odile said they 2 people could get 7kg of turkey. Poultry is 3.5kg per person.

Re: Bringing a turkey from England

Feedback time- I just flew in from Leeds this morning, my bird in my bag. At Geneva Airport I declared it and the officer smiled and said- joyeux NoŽl madame. It weighs 3.8 Kg.

Merry Christmas to you all. Thank you for your comments.

Re: Bringing a turkey from England

Thanks Molula - now you make sure to cook it well, won't you Enjoy and Merry Christmas.

Thanks miniMia - seems like my words are regularly misunderstood lately [wink wink]....

beta.ch - I am very lucky that I live so close to the border. When I went to buy our leg of lamb, I took OH and 3 of my students with - bought them all a drink at the HyperU cafť - sorted And if I still have too much - I leave some at my friend's whose fence is the border, and pick it up the next day.
