About your permit or certificate

What type of wildlife trade permit do you need?

Do you wish to: bring a specimen into Australia (import) send a specimen out of Australia (export) or take a specimen back out of Australia that was previously imported (re-export)?
Is your specimen an Australian native species and/or a species listed under CITES?

Exports of Australian native plants and animals are strictly controlled. Specific requirements also apply for international trade in species listed under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). If your specimen is an Australian native species that is also listed under CITES, you will need to apply for a CITES permit. Australian native species are listed on the Species Profile and Threats Database available at: http://www.environment.gov.au/cgi-bin/sprat/public/sprat.pl Species listed under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) are available at: http://checklist.cites.org/#/en To import a live specimen, the species must be listed on the Live Import List available at: https://www.comlaw.gov.au/Details/F2014C00647 More information on importing and exporting live plants and animals is available at: http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/wildlife-trade/live To import a live specimen that is not listed under CITES, you may require a regulated live non-CITES specimen permit. Please direct any inquires to wildlifetrade@environment.gov.au or phone (02) 6274 1900.
What is the purpose of your proposed trade?

Wildlife trade includes all movements of wildlife into and out of Australia, including: commercial trade (buying and selling of plants and animals or items made from them) non–commercial trade such as the international movement of animals and plants for research and exhibition bringing in plant or animal specimens for personal use taking Australian native animals out of Australia as pets buying goods over the internet that are made from plants and animals. Information on the purposes of proposed shipments is available at http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/wildlife-trade/trading Information on importing and exporting household pets is available at: http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/wildlife-trade/live/household-pets.html
What type of permit or certificate are you applying for?
A Single Use Permit authorises a single import or (re)export shipment during a six month period for CITES listed specimens and up to twelve months for Australian native specimens. Single Use Permits are also issued for the export and import of live specimens (including household pets). A Multiple Consignment Authority authorises multiple import or (re)export shipments of particular specimens over a period of up to six months for CITES listed specimens and up to three years for Australian native specimens. A Personal Baggage Permit applies to the export of a CITES listed specimen carried in accompanied baggage for personal use. These types of permits are often provided by retailers at point of sale. Please note that wildlife items sent internationally via mail and or freight must be accompanied by a valid CITES permit (not a personal baggage permit). A Pre-CITES Certificate authorises the (re)export of specimens that pre-date the listing of the species under CITES. Species listed on Appendix I of CITES generally may not exported without being accompanied by a Pre-CITES Certificate. Imports of specimens that pre-date the listing of the species under CITES must be accompanied by pre-CITES certificate issued by the CITES Management Authority (CMA) in the exporting country. Contact details for international CITES Management Authorities are available at: http://www.cites.org/cms/index.php/component/cp A Certificate of Origin is required for the export of specimens listed under Appendix III of CITES where that specimen does not originate from the population that is listed under CITES. A Testing Permit authorises the importation of specimens into quarantine-approved facilities to conduct to assess any potential environmental impacts of the specimen. More information on testing permits is available at: http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/wildlife-trade/permits/forms/biological.html
How long is a permit or certificate valid for?
Single Use Permits, Multiple Consignment Authorities and certificates issued for CITES listed specimens may be issued for a maximum period of 6 months. Single Use Permits for export of Australian native species (that are not listed under CITES) may be issued for a maximum period of 12 months. Multiple Consignment Authorities for export of Australian native species (that are not listed under CITES) may be issued for a maximum period of 3 years.

About Your Specimens
This section provides a search field to assist you in finding the correct scientific name of the specimen(s) you wish to ship (if you are purchasing the item(s) you should be able to obtain the scientific name from the seller/supplier). If you are unable to ascertain what species your specimen is made from or contains, you may need to consider having the item identified by a recognised museum or scientific institution. Please note it will not be possible to issue a permit or certificate without a scientific name. Begin entering the scientific or common name of your specimen into the search field. The form will automatically populate a list of suggested species based on the names with the highest similarity to your search term. Please note: You can search by scientific name or common name, but you must select the appropriate scientific name. Noting that some common names can refer to multiple species, so please be careful when entering common names.
Once you have found the appropriate species name on the drop-down menu, click on it. This will populate the scientific name and any common names in the appropriate fields. Please note: If the species name you are looking for does not appear in the search results you can enter the name manually by selecting ‘Click to manually enter’, then enter the scientific name in the appropriate field. Product Description
Enter a brief description (e.g. skin, tooth, handbag, etc.)
Source Code
Please select the appropriate source code from the drop-down menu.
Quantity (number)
Please note quantity must be entered in numerals.
Unit
Select the unit of measurement from the drop-down menu. If the specimen is not in a standard unit of measurement, select ‘number of specimens’.
Do I have to supply a tag number?
Tag numbers only apply to crocodilian skins or back straps, lungfish, live animals that have transponder numbers and some species of native plants. If you are unsure if you need to provide tag numbers you can find our more by: calling +61 2 6274 1900 emailing wildlifetrade@environment.gov.au visiting www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/wildlife-trade/index.html
How do I add additional specimens?
If you are shipping more than one specimen click the ‘Add another specimen’ button below the first specimen and repeat the specimen search process as described above.
If you are importing an item that is made from multiple species (e.g. a handbag made from crocodile and python skin), please enter the details for each species used in the item as a separate specimen and give the product description as the ‘item name’ (e.g. handbag) made from mixed skins.
