Import of Live Corals
Additional import of all Scleretinia sp. stony corals will be in keeping with policies governing import and commerce in protected marine species.
- You must first obtain a permit for commerce through the permits portal to register as an authorized importer by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.
- Along with obtaining the permit for commerce, you must email a typed application to email@example.com. Attached is the import permit application form. When filling out the form there is no need to fill in names of corals, but rather just write: “stony corals.”
- Assessment and issuing of the permit will take up to 30 days
- An import permit for corals does not require payment of a fee. The permit may be used multiple times and is valid for six months.
- After you receive your import permit, contact the Fishing Department of the Ministry of Agriculture to determine whether an additional permit is needed: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Forty-eight hours before the shipment arrives, you must inform the INPA’s representative by email or text of the flight details of the shipment. Contact information appears on the permit.
- After the shipment arrives or the permit expires you most report to the permits department on the quantities that were actually imported (and also report non-use of the permit).
