In the case where only small quantities (5 or less) are to be imported, the plants and quantities of each may be listed.
In the case where five or more are to be imported the space provided is too small to hold the plants and the quantity of each. In this case simply supply two copies of your list or two copies of your invoice. In the space provided write ‘plants as per attached list’. Two copies are required since one copy of the list will be attached to the application and the other is attached to the import permit.
In the case where a change is made to the order it is simpler to change the attached list rather than have to re-issue the Import Permit.Submission information
