PURCHASING FROM OVERSEAS

The Australian government along with 175 other countries is party to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). The main purpose of CITES is to protect targeted species against exploitation and protect ecosystems from the introduction of invasive species. CITES generally requires permits for international movement of items containing plants and/or animals listed under CITES.

The Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy is responsible for issuing CITES permits to allow the movement of crocodile leather goods overseas. As the item will be travelling as freight and not as personal luggage, the requirements of CITES require a CITES Export Permit.

The permit application takes up to eight weeks to process and requires an additional fee of AUD $66.00 to lodge the application. We can complete the application on your behalf and will require your full name and residential address and contact details.
