Border crossings and customs offices, opening hours

For personal goods in tourist traffic, the largest border crossings are open 24 hours a day, Monday through Sunday, and are staffed by border guards. Special opening hours apply at airports. Numerous small border crossings, however, are open only at certain times, while some are no longer manned at all. Please note the customs office opening hours for the declaration (customs clearance) of merchandise. Declarations can be made from Monday to Friday during clearance hours; some customs offices are also open on Saturday mornings.

Entry requirements for Switzerland

Border controls at Switzerland's borders with the Schengen countries were lifted on 15 June 2020, and full freedom of movement for persons with all EU/EFTA countries and the United Kingdom applies again.
