Fish & Wildlife Service may require you
to obtain an Import Permit from Fish & Wildlife. Getting the permit isn't difficult or terribly expensive, but understanding some of the hows and whys will make your personal experience go a little more smoothly. In this article, I will cover a few of the circumstances when you do need a permit, when you might not, and what to do if you do need it. Generally speaking, an Import Permit is not needed for common, domesticated animal products such as cow, sheep and goat products, rabbit furs and skins, and a number of other unregulated animal-derived products and materials. This would also include avian products like domestic goose down, but you can find a full listing on Fish & Wildlife's website, which you can link to later in the article. Additionally, personal shipments of regulated goods can be exempt from the permit requirement, but this area is a little grayer.
