Importing country requirements

It is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the animal meets the importing country requirements. The requirements to import live animals into the State of Hawaii are different to those of the continental United States.

Most birds species, except certain poultry, require two (2) permits (Plant Quarantine Import Permit and a Poultry and Bird Permit) from the Hawaii Department of Agriculture Livestock Disease Control Branch. Birds imported into the State of Hawaii from Australia must also comply with the US Department of Agriculture regulations.

Please refer to these and the Department’s websites for current information about exporting animals (including any suspensions).

Information about the process required to import animals into the State of Hawaii from Australia can be found on the State of Hawaii Department of Agriculture website.
