Presently, animal hospitals’ purpose has been extended to include pet registration. In accordance with the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, canines entering Swiss limitations after January 1, 2007 are subject to scrupulous regulations, which include registering with ANIS, the Animal Identity Service.

Earlier foreign registration is not transferable. When crossing the Swiss border with your dog, you must ask for the services of a veterinarian within 10 days of your entrance.
