We can legally export feathers from Australia to most other countries around the world, including the United Kingdom and the European Union. All exports outside of Australia include a CITES export permit, a CITES species certificate and the invoice.
Customers in the United Kingdom: You can order only items with an "(EX)" in their title and they can be shipped legally to you in the UK. You may require a CITES import permit. Please contact the Department below: Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) Telephone: +44 (117) 372 37 00 - Fax: +44 (208) 415 25 10 Website: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/cites-imports-and-exports Emails: firstname.lastname@example.org (for general queries about CITES permits and certificates) CITESapplication@apha.gov.uk (to submit applications for CITES permits and certificates)
Customers in Europe & Other Countries: You can order only items with an "(EX)" in their title. A CITES import permit may also be required in your country.
How it works A) Once an order is placed by you, we will email you a copy of the CITES export permit and other relevant paperwork within a few business days from placing your order with us. B) From there you will need to contact the CITES Management Authority in your Country, to obtain a CITES Import Permit. C) Once the Import Permit is granted to you, please email a copy to us - and your order will be dispatched within a few days.
*Your local CITES Authority will usually charge you for the Import Permit. This is an additional fee but it's usually not much. Due to Covid-19,the ports around the world have become stricter and the only safe method to order such feathers now is this way. The upside is that even though the dispatch may take up to a six weeks from the order date, the delivery after dispatch should be much faster as it will move smoothly within the transit system.
