Via – the application for PSVA collection


Via is the official application of the The Federal Office for Customs and Border Security (FOCBS) for the payment of the lump-sum heavy vehicle charge (PSVA).

With Via, the PSVA can be paid quickly, easily and independently for vehicles such as motorhomes or coaches registered outside Switzerland or the Principality of Liechtenstein before entering the country. This can be done at any time and from any location. An electronic receipt provides the enforcement authorities with proof of payment if required.

Via Portal   

Since 9 January 2023, foreign users have been able to set up the lump-sum heavy vehicle charge (PSVA) directly in the Via portal (web application) using an internet-enabled terminal device. This means that the Via app no longer has to be downloaded. Only the 10 single-day tickets cannot be purchased via the Via Portal. These are still available in the Via App.

Registration is not mandatory for the use of the Via Portal, as receipts in the portal Via Portal can also be received by e-mail.
