Products, live animals and plants that fall under species protection laws are often offered for sale on the internet or in exchange markets.
This is especially the case with the following:
To import such animals or articles, an import permit from the FVO is always absolutely essential and in some cases also an export permit from the country of consignment, for plants an export permit from the country of consignment.
If these permits are not obtained in advance, these articles, animals or plants must be withheld at customs or at a species protection inspection.
A retroactive import permit may be obtained from the FVO, but especially in the case of articles, animals or plants that have been paid in advance or with cash, the supplier is often not prepared for his part to then apply for an export permit.
Articles, animals and plants for which the necessary documents are missing must be returned or confiscated.
