Travel With Exotic Pets

CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments, drafted as a result of a resolution adopted in 1963 at a meeting of members of the World Conservation Union (IUCN). Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival and it accords varying degrees of protection to more than 33,000 species of animals and plants.

Many exotic pets are protected by CITES. This includes most parrots, cockatoos, lories, and macaws; iguanas; box turtles; and all boas and pythons. However, the budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus), cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus), rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri), and the peach-faced lovebird (Agapornis roseicollis) are not listed by CITES.

If you do not know if your pet is regulated, visit the species list page to find out its status.

Before you leave or travel to the United States, you must have a CITES permit if your pet is listed by CITES. To get a permit, you must submit an application form and meet the issuance criteria.

Below you will find 2 links for CITES. One is to a forum, looks like you will have to register to find out what specific information. The first link is for general info.

Good luck, it looks like you will have your patience tried and your work cut out for you! Then you will have to deal with Mexican customs.

WOW! Thanks for the information. My 3 little budgerigars can have a lifespan of 20 or so more years...will need to know they can accompany me where I go. Thanks again. This was very kind.

I have helped 4 people get their endangered species pets in country. I spoke to Jeffry @ animal shelter regarding my pet Moluccan Cockatoo...he suggested I smuggle her in, Luckily I met Vern and Lori Geiger, we met with Semarnat, processed proper paperwork, brought my pet legally into Mexico.
The process takes time.....my case 3 months....total cost less than $200.00 usd.

Please pm if you need help....the process is a pain....also painless.

There is an attorney that will handle this...His name is Alvaro, he is at LCS every week....I don't know his schedule. If you would like to see all documentation, I would be happy to share.
