Hi
I’m a bit confused by the Swiss border customs declaration.
With regards to what you can and can’t import for personal use food wise.
Although the cost of supplies isn’t really an issue what needs to be declared if anything.
Thanks

Techinically I think youre only allowed a couple of litres of wine.
Realistically, I doubt if anyone on here has been stopped and checked.

You are going into an non EU country so the old fags and spirt/wine allowances technically apply, they are more likely to be stopping Swiss reg vehicles coming back than foreign ones going in and if buying supplies in Swiss shops be aware that nearly everything closes on Sunday like it used to here in the 1970's

I got pulled over entering Switzerland from Italy on the motorway last year. Thought it was a customs check, but they just wanted to sell me a pretty sticker for the windscreen.

On and off for many years.

No customs check for us either (a couple of years ago). We just had to go to the office to buy a 10 day transit permit (over 3.5 tonnes).

I'm an oldbie
1 litre of spirits,
Cheese and meats are an issue..

We've transited through Switzerland loads.

We've never filled in a declaration document, We've just purchased the van warrant to travel.
Most don't bother, other times I've had my van weighed, been accused of having the wrong license, been tried to be charged as a coach, had my dogs scanned, my tyres checked and sent on my way.
Not once have we been asked to show us your whisky and wine.

On another occasion we came across a shitty road check and were boarded with question after question from some jumped up young police🚔 officer.

It's a lovely country though and despite being out the EU rather successful?
