Import from third countries: The regulations for entering Switzerland from a third country differ according to the rabies risk in the country you are coming from. In all cases it is vital for animals first to be marked correctly, then to be vaccinated against rabies and to be accompanied by the documents required in the specific case. More extensive requirements apply if the animal is entering from a country in which there is a risk of rabies (blood test, longer waiting times, import licence, etc.).
