Moving from USA to EU

If you don't want to go through miles of legislation, you should write to the Customs Authority from the EU contry you plan to move (they might have on-line submission forms), explaining your exact situation. I did so when buying (not importing - thats for companies) plants from Korea. Our authority (in EU) layed down the applicable laws and explained what is allowed and in what conditions. In my case i didn't even need Phito Certificates due to low quantity of plants (2) and the absence of potting media. Good luck!

The USFWS is the "responsible party" in the US. Like Kim said, they have been known to interpret things in interesting ways.

A lot of folks whined when they would not let Paph. vietnamense into the country, even though other countries had allowed it. Their reasoning (which I supported) was, at that point in time, that Vietnam had never issued any CITES certificates.
