Do I need a phytosanitary certificate and/or an import permit?

The authorities in your country can provide the necessary information on phytosanitary certificates and important permits. Many countries, such as in Europe, require virtually no authorization to receive our products. In general, the islands, such as Taiwan, Tahiti, New Caledonia, Mauritius, Florida (US) have the most stringent regulations. Please note that Rarexoticseeds does not provide any phytosanitary certificate. However, it is possible to deliver a certificate if your order reaches $50.

We will send you a Paypal request in order to pay for the certificate (cost $20 per certificate). Rarexoticseeds cannot be held responsible for blocking duty due to failure to license, though we can assure you that at least 98% of orders are delivered without problem. Please note that Rarexoticseeds will not refund any order that is intercepted or destroyed by customs.
