    Since it is winter no one ships to Minnesota anyway so I've got plenty of time to get the permit I guess! Thanks for giving the form #!

    Hello,

    I am in the process of getting an import permit as well. Before I mailed in my application today I called the office to clarify some things. I asked if the genus nepenthes was covered under the permit form PPQ 597. I was told that yes they are, but they are on CITES so I was asked if they are for personal use or profit. This seems to be the key as I understand it. For personal collection / growing the general import permit (PPQ 597) covers CITES plants including nepenthes. However, if the CITES plants are for reselling (profit) then a $70 CITES permit is required (PPQ 621). Therefore I was told by the USDA office that PPQ 557 is all that is needed for the import of nepenthes for personal collection. The USDA website also states this (but not so matter of factly).

    I don't need it. Exotica Plants already provides the CITES and photosanitary, so as soon as I get those darn stickers, I'm set [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .

    Matt,

    I am going to ballistic if what you say is true! The biologist who I talked to from the USDA in California really sounded unconvinced that I was ordering these plants just for me and not for selling, even though he gave me a one-time exemption, and said I needed the 621.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Form 587 for an import permit for plants and plant products gives you your PPQ 597 import permit. It cost nothing and is good for 4 years. This is the one that comes with the green/yellow stickers. Everyone who imports MUST have this. If someone asks for your import permit.. this is what they want.

    Form 621 which gives you a General Permit PPQ622 is for businesses and cost $70 for 2 years. This does not come with any stickers. This one is optional if you are not reselling the plants. However as Joe pointed out. Most ports of entry are not aware that this General Permit is not needed by hobbyists. Having this permit absent from a shipment often causes many problems and delays. As well as alot of convincing your only a hobby person, before they will release your package. Importing more than a few plants or more than once or twice a year without the General Permit will likely raise eyebrows as well.
    I would recommend you get this one also simply to avoid problems at the inspection station even if your not a business.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
