Can anyone tell me if you can and what the procedures are to take an orchid out of Belize to the USA? Thanks

Wonder what needs to be done on the US side upon entry? There is that question on the Customs form about animals, fruits and plants. I always heard it was not easy to bring plants into the US, maybe that is incorrect?

From Belize Botanic Garden about orchids.

Belize is a member of CITES , an international agreement to protect plant and animal species in danger of extinction through international trade. Orchids are protected under CITES and that makes it illegal to remove orchids from the country of Belize without a permit.

Do your part for orchid conservation and do not collect orchids (or other plants or animals) unless you have a valid reason and have obtained the proper permits. If you purchase an orchid make sure it comes from a cultivated collection and was not taken from the wild. BBG does not participate in selling native orchids. Our collection is mainly for educational and research purpose.
