Before planning on importing a turtle into the country a person should check on the local importation laws of the state, province or territory to which he or she is planing to bring the animal.
The following list contains links to all the offices of Department of Agriculture across the country which will assist any person in obtaining the importation permit.

Many of these links might not work. The governments of many States unfortunately
change their addresses often which is difficult to keep up with. If you would find any new, updated information
regarding this please let me know and I would be happy to update this site. I would also be more than happy to
include any additional information that you might come across and which you think would be beneficial to fellow turtle lovers.
