Import Permit Applications

All CDC import permit applications must be submitted electronically using the eIPP system. Depending on the type of permit being requested, two applications are available in the system:

  • Permit to Import Biological Agents or Vectors of Human Disease
  • Permit to Import or Transport Live Bats

Please see the eIPP Resource Center  for more information and assistance with using eIPP. This website also provides instructions to potential applicants that are new eIPP users.

Paper versions of the applications are no longer accepted by the program.
