Exporting of Curio Items with Hunting Trophies
This is no longer a cheap and easy process to combine these items with your clients’ trophies. Please consider all details below before you encourage your client to buy any wooden products from a flea market or from vendors next to the road. If products are bought from these suppliers make sure you receive a detailed invoice on behalf of your client to present to your Taxidermy for export purposes.
The following specifications are requirements of Fish and Wildlife, and should be taken VERY seriously:
There is a new(er) regulation that has been implemented by USDA/AGRI, called the Lacey Act. Any wooden article valued over $2000.00 is subject to this regulation and the below form must be completed and sent to Customs at time of entry. This is the responsibility of the Importer, however they will be relying on origin for the information.
