How to Apply for a Licence
Applications for licences to import, introduce from the sea, export, re-export or possess endangered species listed in Schedule 1 to the Ordinance should be made in a specified application form, supported by documents such as CITES Export Permit, Licence to Import/ Posses and invoice, to this Department. Normally, 2 working days are required for processing an application for licences (5 working days in the case of import of live animals). Applicants have to pay a prescribed fee for the licence.
Re-export Certificate is issued on application for specimens that are either non-CITES or not yet controlled under Cap. 586 to facilitate customs clearance of consignment of these specimens on arrival at the importing country. The application procedures for a Re-export Certificate are the same as those for a licence issued under Cap. 586.
