Finally got my approval for permit PPQ587. The PPQ621 is good for 2 years, the PPQ587 is good for 5. Now I have to start plotting orders.

Well, guess we will see how this goes. This is what I had to do to get the order through.

I had to contact the seller and get phytosanitary certificates and make sure he knew not to ship until he received my import permits and label for the package. Next I had to go and make a UPS account because after USDA inspects the plants you will need a UPS or Fedex account # so the inspection station can forward the plants to you at your cost.

Next I had to get the seller a package together. I placed the label in plastic labeled "outside of package" and put my permits in plastic labeled "inside with plants". These are shipped to the seller(I used priority).

Now I just have to wait. Update when something significant happens.

Label, for the outside of package.

Permits, for inside of package.

Contents of package to be shipped to seller.

Small update for a lil clarity. When you contact the seller before placing your order make sure they understand the only address they should ship to is the inspection station and place your invoice with shipping label inside with the plants. My package has 2 ship to addresses and I'm not sure its supposed to be labeled like this. Hopefully it will be alright but do not have your packages labeled this way.

Second, if you order sarrs, ask the seller to trim back the pitchers. I didnt and the seller shipped with pitchers intact. This has me worried more than the label because those pitchers have to pass inspection from insects and disease.

Now I just have to wait and see what happens.

Plants arrived today in great condition...minus a plant. Unsure what happened. Nothing from USDA saying they destroyed anything. I'm hoping the seller just forgot a plant. I have a lil daycare deal going on atm but I'll post pics later:).

They went through the inspection station in atlanta GA. Some look a lil rough and will need a lil time for new stronger pitchers to grow but I'm happy. Now just need to figure out what happened to my missing plant.

Thanks Matt! Im surprised at how simple the whole process is.

I really hope this thread helps anyone wanting to import plants! I know I had to do most of the research myself and it was a pain so I was hoping this would help with the process.
