Import & Export

Import

To import llamas, alpacas, guanacos, vicunas, or camels into New York State you must have a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection issued by an accredited veterinarian in the 30 days preceding importation.

There is no permit number required to import llamas, alpacas, guanacos, vicunas, or camels into New York State.

 
Special Considerations

New York City has its own regulations regarding animals coming into city limits in addition to New York State import requirements. Cattle going to New York City for any reason need to meet New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene regulations. Please visit their website or call (646) 364-1783.
