This news and analysis are provided by the Ornithological Council, a consortium supported by ornithological societies. Join or renew your membership in your ornithological society if you value the services these societies provide to you, including OrnithologyExchange and the Ornithological Council.

As of today, May 31, the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Veterinary Services will issue its permits for import, export, and transportation of animals and animal products, organisms, and vectors through the new APHIS eFile system.

All new permits and renewals should be requested through eFile. Amendments to permits acquired through the older ePermits systems should be requested through that system. All permits in the ePermits system will remain valid until they expire.

Instructions about applying for the necessary permits to import to or export from the U.S. can be found in the OC’s Import Guide, which has been updated to include this new APHIS system. If you have questions, please contact the OC!

For more information, read this article from April, which includes a press release from APHIS.
