Special Considerations

At the time of entry into Switzerland to attend an event under EF, the customs official will usually validate a transit counterfoil or voucher (blue) to move the goods from the place of entry (airport or border crossing point) to the location of the fair. Upon entry to the event, a customs inspector to complete the transit will validate a second transit.  At the same time, an importation certificate (white) will be validated to cover the goods while at the event.  Upon departure the reverse will occur.  Re-exportation set (white) will be validated and a transit set will be validated to cover the goods while “in transit” from the event to the airport or border crossing point.  At departure the second transit must be validated. Failure to have the 2nd transit validated will likely result in a regularization fee.  These rules only apply to Carnets entering as EF (Exhibitions and Fairs).
