Before placing an order, it's your responsibility to check that any products ordered comply with state and federal government import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect your goods.

If your order is stuck in customs, the recipient needs to contact their local customs office and pay any additional charges or taxes to release the goods. Swiss Perfection cannot do this on your behalf.

Payment is to be made in CHF. International credit card providers or banks (excluding Switzerland) will decide on the exchange rate, and may add an additional processing or administration charge, which the cardholder will need to pay.

Unfortunately, we do not refund any VAT requests.
