Only the following reptiles and amphibians may be imported into Western Australia (WA), however, all python species imports are prohibited.

There is a blanket ban on all species of python entering Western Australia from overseas and ALL states & territories of Australia. The reason for the import ban is due to the risks associated with the transmission of "Boid IBD" (Inclusion Body Disease). Even those pythons appearing on attached schedule 1 are not permitted to enter Western Australia. Only pythons purchased from Western Australia-based Dealers can be kept in this state.

People living in WA and holding the appropriate reptile and amphibian licence may apply for an import licence as per attached application form. People sending reptiles or amphibians will need an appropriate export permit from their own state or territory government.
