ePermits Registration

In order to apply for import permits using the e-permits system, you must first register with the USDA using their eAuthentication system.

The application form is straightforward. The only technical detail you'll need to know is that you should choose “Level 1 Access” on the “Create an Account” webpage, even though the instructions suggest you should choose Level 2.

Fill in the blanks, choose a user name and password, and you’ll receive approval within an hour by e-mail.
