The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of wild fauna and flora (CITES) permit is needed when mailing Cultivated Wisconsin Ginseng and Wild American Ginseng products to China, but you may also get a CITES export permit for carrying ginseng to China. This applies to ginseng whole roots, prongs, fibers and slices, but ginseng powder is exempted. For more details, please click here.
It doesn't have a limit of ginseng products per CITES permit but shipping companies do, please check with them before ordering your permit with us.
The cost of this permit covers the Shipping Certificate fee ($15 -- charged by WDATCP), CITES export permit fee ($5) and two-ways shipping of the ginseng to an APHIS inspection center by UPS ($20-$30).
Please be noted that it takes at least 5 business days to go through the procedures. Make sure to give us the information below when you place your order for the CITES export permit in the "Note to the Seller" at checkout. Thank you!
1- Name and address of the consignee or the person carrying the ginseng;
2- Date of shipping or travel;
3- And the city where you ship or the US departure airport.
