Due to work I am going to spend a long season in Switzerland (at least 3-12months).
I have a question that may sound stupid or redundant but I am quite lost and would thank help about it
I have a 2017 BR made guitar, with a Cites Cert, the builder got the cites papers(i also have the bill), on the document the following things are stated:
-it was generated by the Spanish Cites authority
-the doc is valid only for the UE (for commercial activities/selling the item by the builder)
-the wood is dalbergia nigra from an unknown source but acquired before 1982/introduced in the EU before 1984
This is the doc (sorry it is in Spanish)
The builder of this guitar told me he is lost about the import permission or other docs needed (they imported guitar with BR before but thru a shop and eventually the shop stopped buying stuff with BR...)
I have a friend who traveled to Basel for a guitar seminary, apart of the Cites (in this case generated by the Brazilian authorities) he has other doc a "certificate of origin"(again a Brazilian doc) that states that the wood on his guitar is older than 100 years Rio, he never had any issues (he thinks mainly because of that doc)
Does anybody knows what i would need to get the guitar legally into the country?
Obviously I would prefer to take it with me rather than leaving it on storage or trying to sell it (inside of the EU)...
