CITES permit question
Question for those who have going through the CITES application process. I'm about 3 months into the process and US Fish and Wild-life dept has contacted me with some questions as they're processing my application now. Along with their questions they wrote the following:
>Also, just an FYI: our application states that you will need to provide a copy of your current USDA Protected Plant Permit. We don't actually require that for the issuance of the CITES permit, but you WILL need that permit from USDA as you very likely will be asked for it at the port. Just FYI.
For those that went through this process, did you also apply for a Plant Permit. I'm 3 months in and was hoping to be done with this soon and finally have the permit and it sounds like now I may need to start the process over again for a second plant permit? Anyone know anything about this?
