Re: [Killietalk] Law Breaking
I have just renewed my importation permit and the price is now $100.
Each shipment costs $55 for inspection and most locations I use for Fish &
Wildlife require a minimum 48 hour notice that you will be coming through.
If you import wild fish and cannot go to certain specified ports of entry -
you must obtain a Port Exception Permit - which cost you an additional $100
and prove you meet their criteria (undue hardship/costs - certain education
criteria - couple other options)
There is really no need for a lawyer to research this issue - it is very
plain and clear, according to F&WS regulations - you may NOT import any form
of wildlife without a permit. U.S. Customs has no real say in this area.
This includes walking across the border with 1 pair of guppies ( I know from
experience - I live on the Canadian border). Some F&WS inspectors are
lenient and it depends on your relationship with them, but please don't
misunderstand - F&WS will bust you if they decide to.
