make sure you own the car for more than 6 months or you will have to pay the import duties....not cheap!

Re: importing cars from US to ch

docs you will need

TITLE from the STATE you registered

and

INSURANCE POLICY you had

you will also have to take the car after customs clearance for a vehicle test. however, the swiss law states you can drive with your US plates for 1 year after arrival.
