    importing...

    when receiving plants from Malaysia, with all the necessary paperwork...


    is there something I need to do? Do I need to get an import permit? oh my..


    I live in USA and the plants are not CITES protected.

    Not everything is protected under cites... If it isn't, you need a phytosanitary certificate. The seller usually has an option to provide this. if they don't, steer clear: they're trying to import illegally.

    @heli: only if you be purchasing nepenthes protected under CITES. heliamphora are not protected under CITES for example. only drosera i believe to be protected under CITES is D. regia.

    You may need the permit 587 unless it is less than 13 items. Check with USDA/APHIS. You need a CITES permit for Nepenthes plants or plant parts if N. raja or N. kashiana. All Nepenthes are covered by CITES I or II. For Appendix II you do not need a CITES permit for:

    http://www.cites.org/eng/app/appendices.php
    a) seeds (including seedpods of Orchidaceae), spores and pollen (including pollinia). The exemption does not apply to seeds from Cactaceae spp. exported from Mexico, and to seeds from Beccariophoenix madagascariensis and Neodypsis decaryi exported from Madagascar;
    b) seedling or tissue cultures obtained in vitro, in solid or liquid media, transported in sterile containers;
    c) cut flowers of artificially propagated plants;
    d) fruits, and parts and derivatives thereof, of naturalized or artificially propagated plants of the genus Vanilla (Orchidaceae) and of the family Cactaceae;
    e) stems, flowers, and parts and derivatives thereof, of naturalized or artificially propagated plants of the genera Opuntia subgenus Opuntia and Selenicereus (Cactaceae); and
    f) finished products of Euphorbia antisyphilitica packaged and ready for retail trade.
    The plants must be shipped a valid customs declaration, CITES (where applicable), copy of your 587 and phytosanitary certificates. The plants must be free of pests and disease and the roots free of any medium including Sphagnum moss or they won't pass quarantine. Again you don't need a CITES permit if the plant is Tissue Culture propagated and still in the flask.

    Seeds in quantities greater than 50 per taxon also require a phytosanitary certificate.


    CITES import permit is $90.

    Your State may require additional permits.

    Think you can get away with a misleading customs declaration? Read on.
