U.S. Fish & Wildlife Import Export License New eLicense System
Introducing the Electronic eLicense
On October 2, 2017, The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service introduced the new eLicense system, allowing individuals and companies that import or export wildlife for commercial purposes to apply for required licenses electronically. These parties may also renew or amend a current or expired license.
Import and Export Licenses for shipments containing wildlife are issued to entities (companies or individuals) before they commercially import into or export from the United States. This document is separate from any other permit issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and does not replace the necessity for such documents if your shipment requires them.
