Shipping semen from Canada to US

Postby Prue » Thu Apr 25, 2013 10:51 pm

I am planning on shipping semen from Canada to the US (California) next week. It's a while since I did this and wonder if there are any new regulations? I may take the shipment across the border myself - to make sure it arrives at it's destination by the next day. What paperwork do I need at the the border for customs and will there be duty to pay? Any help appreciated.

To the best of my knowledge, there are no restrictions on shipment of semen from Canada to the USA as far as health regulations are concerned. You should however confirm that with your local CFIA office, as it can change.

If you take the semen across the border yourself, you may have to get a broker to clear it for you - it will depend entirely upon what Border Guard you happen to have. One cannot self-broker when importing to the US, unlike going the other way (Canada Customs allow one to do one's own paperwork although sometimes it's easier to use a broker). There is no duty that I am aware of. If you ship it via courier, the courier company will take care of the brokerage (and charge you for it) if required.
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!
