- IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:
We ship internationally with a Phytosanitary Certificate when required.
Import laws, regulations, and requirements change regularly please confirm with your local authority to find out what documentation may be required for each species you intend to import.
Customs and or quarantine requirements can change regularly resulting in your authorities not accepting shipments that do not have the correct documentation to import the seed. They may send to shipment back, destroyed or recover the additional cost from the importer.
Unfortunately, we do not know all quarantine restrictions that may be applicable to your country or state therefore all orders are shipped on the understanding that we have no control over any restrictions whatsoever and this responsibility is solely with the purchaser to ensure they meet their countries requirement and supply Australian Seed with any additional requirement that may be required to import their order.
Australian Seed can only provide export and import information as a guide, it should not be used as a county's authority to import any goods.
The United States now requires a "small Seed Lot Permit" to import seeds. This is free and can be completed online by visiting: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/planthealth/import-information/permits/plants-and-plant-products-permits/plants-for-planting/ct_smalllots_seed
A step by step guide on obtaining the permit can be found on our website USDA Permit Information for USA
We strongly recommend you obtain a permit to import small seed lots to ensure they pass through your customs unhindered.
Once you obtain your permit please ensure when emailing us your “Small Seed Lot “permit you include both the permit and the green and yellow shipping labels. Both these are required before we ship your order.
