I figured I'd start my own thread, I didn't want to hijack the previous one that another member posted since we're not going to the same place.
We could be potentially moving to Germany this year. The deadline for signing up for it is coming up soon and the only thing holding us back from starting this new and exciting adventure is our reptiles. We don't want to get rid of them since they're all part of the family (and lots of money has gone into them!).
Does anyone know anything about importing them to Germany? We have five ball pythons, a dumeril boa and our panther chameleon.
I've called the USDA, which didn't know and sent me to the German Consulate in Miami, which didn't know and told me to email German Customs about it. I emailed them but I wish I could call them and get an answer now since I'm not sure how quickly they'll respond, but I don't have a international phone card and my German speaking husband is off at work so I'm not sure if I'd be able to talk to anyone if I did call anyway. And of course the guy at his base that's in charge of this position doesn't know anything and just told us to google and call to figure it out.
From the research I've done online, Germany does not require imported animals to be quarantined so I don't have to worry about that stressing the reptiles out. The only info I could find that was close to reptiles was on the German Customs website that talked about pet turtles - they don't require a vet check or paperwork. I'm hoping the same is true for our snakes and cham.
So anyone on here know anything? I've seen a few German members on here - you guys know anything?
