    When you get the right office, you are gold. If all else fails, you can email the office (or call) of Carolyn Fitzgerald. She is the one most likely to sign your permit. I would not do it on skippy, though. Only if you have a real problem.

    Just to clarify a few things about importing the plants after you get your permit/s. You should contact the place youre ordering before placing an order to tell them you have permits and need a phytosanitary cert. After placing your order you have to ship the seller your permit(whichis just a sticker to be placed on the package they ship iinm) before they shipyour plants. The seller should ship the package to your nearest inspection station with a label with your address in with the plants so aphis can forward them to you.

    Now this is only if you order 13 plants or more. 12 or less require a phytosanitary cert only if theyre not on CITES.

    I'm so anxious.

    PPQ621 was issued on the 14th. Still waiting on the PPQ587 as they had follow up questions that I didnt notice until today so check your aphis e account often.

    Was approved for the PPQ587. Just waiting on paperwork and stickers to arrive now. Really simple process if you have the patience.

    About 3-4 years back we timed a few at around 10-12 working days from start to getting your labels and paperwork in the mail. This was with the online ez-permits. It may take longer now with all the sequestration budget cutbacks.

    The reason my 587 took so long is they needed more detailed info in the species area and I didnt notice it in my inbox on the e site for a week so totally my fault for the delay on that one.

    Check your epermit account daily to avoid this.

    Does it cost anything to get the permit (PPQ587 I'm assuming) necessary for importing non-CITES plants?
