Procedure descriptions

Apply for an import permit for animal by-products or animals

You need an authorisation for the import, transit and, in individual cases, intra-Community movements of animals, animal by-products and animal products as well as goods that may be carriers of infectious agents.

This does not apply to animals and goods originating in a third country for which no authorisation is required and which are accompanied by a certificate.

An authorisation may not be granted if there is a risk of spreading animal diseases.

The permit should be applied for at least two to three weeks before shipping the goods or the animal.

Required documents

Documents are required. These vary depending on the individual case. Please contact the competent office.


The approval is subject to a fee. The fees shall be determined in accordance with the respective schedule of costs or fees.

  • Intra-Community movement means movement between Member States of the European Union.
  • Importation involves the introduction of animals and goods from third countries. Third countries are countries that do not belong to the European Union.
  • Transit refers to imported consignments that are subsequently re-exported. This means that they come from a third country and also go back to a third country.
  • Prior to any movement, import or transit, it should be clarified exactly which requirements have to be fulfilled in order to avoid rejection of the goods or animals at the border or border inspection post.
