Many thanks for your help.

Hi Anil,

Just enjoy the local food. What in particular did you plan to bring with you?

Hello Anil,

You'll find various links on www.myswissalps.com/ab outswitzerland/practic al/websites, also about food import. But I would also recommend not to bring any unless absolutely required. There is plenty of good food in Switzerland.

Dear Ockoyster and Arno

Thanks for your message. I am sure that food (amongst so many other things) in Switzerland will be excellent and I am looking forward to it.

I planned to bring some cooked spicy vegetarian snacks with me and was not sure if this will be a problem in custom clearance. I am aware that food items are not allowed in many countries.

Regards.

Anil

I would say if they are packaged food you should be ok, but homemade or fresh vegetables might prove to be a problem.
