New Pet Pre-Alert Required at Geneva Airport

There is a new requirement when traveling with your pet to Switzerland. Starting January 1, 2016, pre-alert advance notification is now required before your pet can enter the country. Notification is by the pet guardian or appointed local agent, if the guardian is not available, by the shipper. The Station hours are 08:00-16:30 for individual pet owners and 08:00-17:00 for agents. We recommend you do not have your pets travel with arrivals on Friday unless you are sure of the correct paperwork. It is important to remember that no imports are possible on weekends and holidays. If you have any questions regarding import, contact us as soon as possible and we will be able to assist you. It is imperative that you plan ahead and do not leave this important part of your pet’s travel planning to the last minute.
