The United States now requires a “Small Seed Lot Permit” for imported seed. We strongly recommend you obtain a Small Seed Lot ePermit as this will avoid the risk of having your order stopped or confiscated by U.S. Customs.
ePermits must be obtained by the importer (you); it is a simple process and can be applied for online at no cost. The ePermits are valid for 3 years and allow for multiple seed imports.

To assist you in understanding the process in obtaining a Permit we have noted the process below:
Before you can apply for an e-permit online, you first must register online for an eAuthentication USDA Level 2 Account. Once you have registered you can then apply for your ePermit online (Step 2).
Apply for an ePermit online as this is the fastest, most economical way to apply. ePermit approval by the USDA normally takes 2 or 3 days and will be sent via email to your inbox.
Once you have received your approved ePermit and one green and yellow shipping label from the USDA, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org andattach the approved e-permit to the email.
If you wish for ExoticaNZ to ship your order without a USDA ePermit, you will need to confirm during checkout that you agree to take full responsibility if your order is lost or confiscated by US customs/quarantine.
