APHIS’ Veterinary Services (VS) is excited to announce that the 17-129 Live Animals permit application will be available within APHIS eFile on Sept. 17, 2021. Users need to create an APHIS eFile account to submit 17-129 live animal permit applications.
APHIS eFile supports regulatory activities for the Agency, such as permitting, registrations and licenses.
Starting Sept. 17, 2021, stakeholders will use the VS Permitting Assistant (VSPA) in APHIS eFile to determine live animal import and transit movement requirements. Additionally, users can access a summary of all required documentation in APHIS eFile, including permit applications, certificates, and information letters.
APHIS eFile will replace APHIS ePermits and in the near future, all permits will be processed only through APHIS eFile.
