    Hi everyone,

    Well, I have a question about importing plants and the required permits. I've contacted aquis, enviro austraia, customs and many more people regarding applications for an import permit and they have been giving me the run around. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] Where do you get one from?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]? Are there any of you who want to order plants from overseas because it is not worth getting just a few plants and I'm thinking a combined order on the one permit would be better. Let me know what you think.

    thanks
    Christian

    Hello Christian

    I'm an Aussie though I haven't lived (or even been) there for quite a while.
    I think you'll find it very difficult to import live plants. The paperwork is extensive, the plants themselves have to do time (about 3 months I think) in quarantine, often under the care of people that don't know too much about CP's. In Perth there is a one guy works in quarantine that is a Nepenthes nut so things are more hopeful there.
    There is a large fee to actually import the plants and then you pay, per plant, to have them in quarantine and again the fee for that is also pretty hefty. If they die you still pay the fees.

    The Australian gov. doesn't really want you bringing stuff in and they make it as hard as possible so unless you are thinking of bringing in plants in tc or in commercial quantities to offset all the fees then I would give it a miss. Your end cost per plant will be prohibitive.

    Cheers, Troy.
