About applying for an export permit for wildlife
There are 2 types of wildlife exports:
- live animals, usually as pets or for exhibition in wildlife parks and zoos, and
- products of wildlife, including meat, fur and skins.
Due to the disruptions to travel caused by COVID-19, a permit may be issued for up to 3 months. If you would like to export wildlife more than once, and on different dates, you must lodge a new application each time.
Before you apply for a permit, it is a good idea to contact the state or territory you want to export to, and ask about the requirements for importing into that state or territory.
