I have an entry in grey card that I should carry coc with me At least that is the way I understand the note.
I have one of those with one of my bikes, though I only carry a photocopy.

Your understanding is correct.

I know right? However that was the only contact info that was provided in a forum discussing how to get one. Pretty sure I had to use an email to fax service or something like that. I just did a search and people now mention eccoc@bmw.co.uk which seems altogether much more modern.

Re: Import Vehicle When Moving to Switzerland

someone said that toyota in the uk sent them a CoC by default for their new GR yaris bought in the UK. I bought one in CH a few months ago and didn't get a CoC with it. never got one for any other car i've bought in CH either. maybe that's normal in the UK

Re: Import Vehicle When Moving to Switzerland

my situation was a bit different as I imported from the US and just obtained my plates this month.

No need for CoC in Zurich for my BMW 3er but they request a photo of my Vehicle Emission Control Information(USA EPA emissions ratings) which was under my hood. Would find it weird that they accept US emission standards but not European?

You current insurance is probably not valid unless your residency status is updated with you current insurer along with your address. Swiss insurers will not insure without Swiss plates. You can ride without insurance to your first MFK but remember to remove non swiss number plates.
This is not true, you can insure your car with a Swiss insurer and foreign plates. Have to go thru a 3rd-party but the underlying insurance for me was Zurich Insurance. If anyone is looking to insure foreign plated car, it has been discussed before on the forum, NVC in Basel can do it. Ask for Ronny.

Definitely not possible. NVC does not provide vehicle insurance.

I had thought that getting Swiss insurance with the Stammnummer was sufficient but it seems insurance is only valid with plates(?)

My car was tested with foreign plates on without any problem.

I just had my car insured with Zurich thru NVC for the past 6 months, while my car was on foreign plates(US) and that plate number was on the insurance document. Process was quite simple. Would love to hear your data point on the above statement? Did you contact NVC and get turned down?

FYI, I was issued an International Motor Insurance Card(Green).
