The administrative division of Switzerland comprises 26 cantons, which are characterised by a very high degree of autonomy. Due to the limitations in taking up employment by foreigners, Switzerland is not a large concentration of Poles. It is estimated that about 16 thousand of our compatriots live here. Switzerland has a well-developed motorway network. There is a toll on motorways and parts of expressways. Drivers of vehicles weighing up to 3.5 tons – regardless of which roads they drive on – must buy an annual vignette which costs CHF 40. Additionally, tolls are collected for two tunnels. Cars weighing more than 3.5 tons are obliged to pay toll for each kilometre driven. The cost, depending on the degree of emission, will amount to an average of CHF 0.25 per km. Due to the fact that Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, there is a customs procedure in place for people entering and leaving Switzerland. However, customs duties do not have to be paid if we transport our goods in the form of movable property and household effects. In order to be exempt from customs duties, several conditions must be met: you must have an employment contract with a Swiss employer, be a tenant of a flat in Switzerland and, in addition to a valid identity card and passport, you must also have a permanent residence outside Switzerland. A person applying for exemption from customs duty may not be punished in advance in Switzerland or the European Union.
