New Electronic Permitting System
We have launched our new ePermits permitting system. It is now possible to submit permit applications online, as well as pay the processing fee online through this system. 

The Migratory Bird Permit Office administers over 20 permit types across the country. For more information about each permit type and how to apply, please click the links below. Don't know what kind of permit you need? Try searching the USFWS Permits page, using the Refine By Tool, to find the permit type that fits your needs. For processing fees associated with permits, check out our Processing Fees Table.
