Import procedure

Hi,

I will be moving to Switzerland from another EU country this week.

I have read about the 18.44 declaration form for importing personal goods into Switzerland.

I was wondering:
- Coming into Geneva from France, what do I need to declare to the EU (France) side of the border for exporting? If so, is there a special form for this?
- Does the list of items that I am importing need to be in French, or is English accepted?
- In the list of items that are being imported, do you normally list the value alongside all the times?

Thank you in advance!
Matt

Switzerland is NOT an EU country.

I most recently did

1. nothing to be declared to original country - just say you're moving and show 18.44 form with inventory list

2. english is fine

3. I created a table with following columns:

type make model age comments value (EUR) value (CHF)

e.g.

Furniture TV table 3 years 2 50 54.5

Re: Import procedure

Thank you for the help and suggestions!

(EU: I meant I will be moving from another country that is in the EU, not that Switzerland is in the EU.)
