Animal feedstuffs

Different customs duties and regulations are applicable for animal feedstuffs depending on the type, characteristics and usage. We recommend that you consult the Electronic Customs Tariff www.tares.ch.

In particular, the following should be noted:

  • For the importation of animal feedstuffs for animals of the bovine, ovine, caprine, porcine and equine species, as well as for rabbits (including dwarf rabbits) and domestic poultry, authorisation is required as a rule (www.reservesuisse.ch).

  • In the case of animal feedstuffs made from animal products or ones which contain animal products, veterinary legislation must be observed. Information can be found on the website of the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office FSVO.

Our information on refunds of customs duties on animal feedstuff for zoo animals, laboratory animals and other animals can be found at: Pet food (feedstuffs).
