Check with our office for information on export application requirements for any native species.


This is the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species of which New Zealand is a member nation. The transfer of birds and reptiles in to and out of New Zealand often requires a CITES certificate to be issued before we can confirm the flights. We recommend contacting our office well ahead of travel date to ensure CITES requirements can be met.
