Under the bilateral agreements between the EU and Switzerland, the animals must comply with the requirements of Directive 92/65/EEC.
The animals must be accompanied by a health certificate completed by the establishment owner (see below under "Health certificate / TRACES"). In case of parrots (psittacidae), the document must be signed by an official veterinarian or the veterinarian empowered for this purpose by the competent authority.
The protective measures in force on the day of import apply in all cases.
Please note that it is not possible to import all categories of animals and goods into Switzerland at all border crossing points. The customs authorities have full autonomy in determining the responsibilities of each customs post.
Certain animal species are additionally subject to species conservation regulations. Please check the conservation status in the CITES species list (see "Further information") and select the corresponding category using the detailed query option.
