    Hey guys. I used to keep a few different species of pythons, a lacey and a few dragons about 20 years ago and looking to get back into keeping a few critters again, things have come a long way since back then with color phases, crosses, etc! I've just sent away for my lic and looking to import from SA or NSW to VIC and wanted to know what the process was and what it costs?! Thanks for your help.

    Import permits are issued FOC in Vic though can take 5-10 days currently to process.
    Export permits would be the responsibility of the seller.

    Freight costs can vary but typically expect around 90-110 per animal. Some breeders will discount on freight if you are buying multiple animals.

    What is it you are looking for that you can't get in Victoria?

    NSW Export permits are obtained by the seller and cost $27 online, available immediately.

    Just a standard movement advice form to import into or export out of QLD. Awesome.

    Only problem with them is apparently you need a computer with Word and a printer for the macros to complete the form. I have a lot of problems selling into Qld because the buyers can't complete the form on their phone or tablet, usually have to do it for them.

    Thats because you do it on a computer and have a printer, half the new generation don't and apparently it won't work on a phone plus you have to print it.

    SA export permits are organised by the seller, and cost nothing. 2 working day turn around, but they are pretty relaxed if it gets shipped in the meantime.

    I don’t have a printer @Yellowtail if I do need forms printed it’s 50c at the local library, perhaps you could get your customers to do the same?

    The form can only be filled out digitally. They will not accept handwritten forms.

    So do you guys and girls have to have permits to keep snakes full stop or just to move them from region to region (sorry to be nosey) is this to stop interbreeding with locality snakes and muddying the gene pool

    depends on the states. every state has different laws. in our state you need a license to keep any snake, it's a very stupid licensing system though.

    Licences to keep and permits to move depending on where you live. You'd think the country would have a uniform system across the board but no...

    that's illegal unless you have a license too.

    Most states require you to have training before you can keep vens/hots.
