Notice: If you have any questions or concerns regarding the procedures and requirements for exporting animals, animal products, or to obtain a zoosanitary certificate for an animal product, you should contact the VS Field Office covering the area from which the animal or product will be exported, the area in which your office is located, or the area in which the product is manufactured.
Animal Products to Switzerland
Switzerland is not a member state of the European Union (EU). However, Switzerland requires the same certificates as the European Union for most commodities. Prior to preparing to export, exporters should have their Swiss importers confirm with the pertinent Swiss authorities. For commodities where the importer verifies an EU certificate is required, please refer to the general information file for the European Union.
