For questions about PERMITS:

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service International Affairs Program works to conserve our nation’s wildlife and species of international concern. Due to a permitting backlog, we are currently focusing on processing permit applications and are not providing status updates on permit applications at this time. In addition, letters acknowledging that the Service has received a permit application may take up to 45 business days to issue. For all other inquiries, please email Thank you.
