IF YOU BUY FROM OUTSIDE CANADA:
This species requires special C.I.T.E.S. permits. Please pay the C.I.T.E.S. application fee.
Regulations and procedures have changed with respect to shipping CITES species to international jurisdictions. In light of these changes, here are the new steps that international buyers must be aware of when placing an order to buy CITES material.
All CITES shipments must be shipped via a courier company and NOT via CANADA POST since Canadian Border Agents can pull parcels for inspection from the courier company but not Canada Post.
The US Government’s Fish and Wild Life Dept levies a fee of $93.25 per CITES shipment to clear it. Then there are duties and taxes on top. So for example, if you purchase a CITES listed species, you can expect to pay clearance, duties and taxes by the US Government in order for the parcel to arrive in your hands.
For the European Union, collectors who order CITES listed species from us must use the re-export permits that we acquire from the Canadian Government to acquire import permits BEFORE we ship the order to the EU Zone. VAT and other inspection fees vary from EU country to country. But one can expect to pay for the importation of the CITES order and the clearance of it plus duties and taxes.
These changes have been implemented so to weed out those who wish to circumvent the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species and while we can see these changes will have a material and real impact on our business, we fully support these changes for the sake of thwarting the illegal trade in these restricted species.
