Located in central Europe, Switzerland is a mountainous country, home to numerous lakes, villages and the high peaks of the Alps. Its cities contain medieval quarters, with landmarks like capital Bern’s Zytglogge clock tower and Lucerne’s wooden chapel bridge.
Switzerland is world-renowned for many things, such as its ski resorts, hiking trails, Swiss watches and chocolate. Though the biggest attraction in Switzerland is by far the mountain ranges, where you can ski, snowboard, hike and cycle along the Swiss Alps.
There is no official Swiss language, although Switzerland does have four languages that are considered official; these are Swiss-German, French, Italian and Romansh. However, many Swiss people do speak English, especially in larger cities and tourist hotspots.

Swiss Customs Information
When shipping goods to Switzerland, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects or a gift to a loved one; if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. My Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to complete and attach to your shipment when you send your luggage to Switzerland.
Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no control over any decisions made, we do advise doing your own research unto Swiss customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Switzerland.

My Baggage gives you the freedom to ship your personal belongings all over the world, meaning you can send almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase.

As general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:
- Animal Products
- Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards
- Dangerous Goods
- Hazardous Goods
- Passports or other confidential personal documentation
- Perishable Foods

Please note that there are specific items which can be carried on our services, however, they may not be covered under our compensation cover and should be sent at your own risk. If you choose to send any non-compensation items, please ensure they are packaged appropriately, with plenty of internal packaging for any delicate items.
