​​Wildlife species listed in schedules 5 and 6 of the Wildlife (General) Regulations 2010 are not available for the public to import. Species under other schedules may be imported subject to approval. See the Wildlife Import Permit.

In addition to any import requirements listed on this website, you will also need to meet requirements under the Nature Conservation Act 2002.

The Nature Conservation Act 2002 governs the importation and keeping of wildlife in Tasmania. If you wish to import any animal that is not classified as domestic dog, domestic cat or domestic stock (see schedule 7 of the Wildlife (General) Regulations 2010 for a definition of ‘domestic stock’), you will need to contact the Wildlife Management Branch to apply for an import permit.
