Customs clearance via app (QuickZoll)

QuickZoll is the official customs clearance application of The Federal Office for Customs and Border Security (FOCBS) for tourist traffic. As a private individual, QuickZoll allows to you independently declare goods for importation for your own use or as a gift and pay any applicable taxes and duties directly. In addition, QuickZoll summarises all the important facts about entry to Switzerland briefly and concisely.

Personal goods which were cleared using QuickZoll may be imported through all border crossings into Switzerland. Registration is not required to use QuickZoll.

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

You can find the detailed terms of use in the app.

Please note: Goods that are subject to restrictions, authorisation or bans (e.g. weapons, live animals and products governed by species protection) cannot be cleared using the app. You must declare such goods at a border crossing attended by FOCBS staff.
