Via – the app for PSVA collection

Payment of the PSVA via smartphone


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 is available for the iOS and Android mobile operating systems and can be downloaded free of charge.  


New Release 20.06.2019 

This new version allows you to:


  • share a receipt (via email, SMS, WhatsApp, etc.) so that another person can download the same receipt to their mobile device. You also have the option of restoring a receipt (e.g. if you buy a new device). 
  • change the registration number (number plate) once during the validity period of the purchase receipt, provided that the vehicle type and weight class of the vehicle category are identical. As long as the day is not yet valid or active, you also have the option of correcting the date of the validated day once.
