As a result of changes to the Swiss value added tax law, Amazon's international shopping options will change as of 2019. From 26 December, customers shopping on Amazon.com and other non-EU Amazon websites will not be able to ship non-digital orders to any address in the Swiss Customs Union. Amazon recommends customers from Switzerland shop on Amazon websites in the EU - Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, Amazon.es or Amazon.co.uk.
