Hi,
You can claim it in zurich airport-customs.

Once we tried but we didnt get it as we are having permanent residence address here.But if you dont have residence address here in Switzerland,you can claim and take cash from customs.

Dear sewsu,

Hi, Thanks a lot!

I don't have Swiss residency I will be here for a week of traveling and visiting friends.

The question is, that normally, before registration for the flight you can ask a customs officer to stamp your tax free letter and inspect purchased things.

In Zurich airport, you have registration on flight much before customs zone where customs officers are working. So either you:
1. register for a flight together with baggage registration and they taking your baggage together with purchased things.
2. go on border and stamp a paper together with providing of bought goods.

in 1st case, on a border you can not show anything from your baggage (I am planing to pack everything to the baggage)

in 2nd case you can not came back for a registration (as for my understanding)


that is what mostly not clear for me.

For example in Barcelona's airport, you have special customs officer's window before registration, you show him your good, he stamps papers. It is always crowdly there as well... but after that you can go for a registration and check-in..
