Import of hunting trophies from Africa
Do you intend to go to Africa, for example, to increasingly popular wildlife hunting? If you hunt endangered animal species protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES abbreviated CITES), you will be able to take your hunting trophies to the Czech Republic only under the conditions laid down in this Convention, denoted by its place of signature as the Washington Convention. Over 180 signatory countries are currently conducting CITES. It is binding on the Czech Republic from 1 January 1993.
Under CITES, export and import licenses, so-called CITES permits, are required for export and import of endangered wild animal species. The export authorization shall be issued by the authorities of the Member State from which the endangered wild animals caught come from. Import licenses are issued by the countries where these animals are exported. It does not matter if you are exporting or importing a living endangered wild animal species, or only a part of such an already dead animal or product from it. Therefore, caution is also exercised on the spot when exporting and importing fur, bone or ivory products from such animals.

Grant of authorization by the Czech Environmental Inspectorate
On the Czech side, the Czech Environmental Inspectorate grants CITES permits. Her worker expands and checks the consignment of hunting trophies directly in the airport transit area and verifies the origin and validity of the CITES export permita. As it is the import of animal trophies, it is also necessary to obtain permission from the border veterinary inspection prior to their entry into our territory. Her location is located at Václav Havel Airport in Prague. As soon as the consignment of your hunting trophies receives permission from both of these Czech authorities, we will represent you when making a customs declaration in customs proceedings before the Czech Customs Administration.
The representation of clients in front of the administrative bodies is specialized by our attorney, Tomáš Nahodil, who co-authored four editions of the book about the Administrative Procedure Code. If you order our legal services, you will have your hunting trophies at home early and without any problems.
