Can a US Visitor bring a dog perm in to Switzerland?

We are moving after the new year to Zurich - I don't think we will be able to bring our dog over right away as we will be in temp/corp housing that will most likely not allow for a dog.

Once we get settled, I'm wondering, if I had a family member come over to visit and bring our dog with them and all the paperwork, microchip etc would the dog be allowed in since it's the family member trying to bring the dog in and not us, with actual Visa's?

Would love to hear any insights or experiences ---

But it will be your dog, correct? Your visitor is escorting the dog to Switzerland for you, and you'll meet the dog and visitor at the airport, perhaps? I think if you're identified as the dog's owner, it should not be an issue.

I am no expert and I hope Melancollie or some other equally knowledgable EF'r will chime in, but, as far as I know, if all the paperwork is in order ie microchip, vaccines and pet passport it should be no problem. You may just want to include a signed statement that you, as the owner are giving xxx permission to bring your dog to Switzerland as you are now resident etc etc.

edot and Lynn are correct. It makes no difference whether a dog transport company, your friend/relative, or someone else entirely brings your dog in, as long as all the formalities are completed.

Pity, I thought this was a question about a dog that had recently visited a pooch parlour for a bit of curly coiffure. I would have preferred that thread.

Just make sure you have all the proper documents, shots and the micro-chip, and their shouldn't be any problems. No one at the border (immigration or customs officials) even wanted to see our dog's papers when we brought her from Canada, but with that said, better to be safe than sorry.

LOL, I thought it was about a "perm" too at first glance.
