Importing country requirements

It is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the animal meets the importing country requirements. Additional information to assist exporters with how to prepare reproductive material for export is available on the Department’s website.

An import permit is required.

Refer to the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Indonesia for information about the process required to import animals into Indonesia from Australia.


As the importing country requirements may change without advice to the Department you should check the importing country’s documentation carefully at the time of preparation for export.

Where an importing country issues an import permit, the exporter must ensure the animal meets any requirements in the permit.
