I am hoping to ship Katalox, Verawood, Yellowheart, Bloodwood and/or Steamed swiss Pearwood lumber logs from an American country (Mexico, South American country) to India. Being new with this, I would like to learn the following:

1 – Other than Phytosanitary inspections, what other requirements are there to proceed through?

2 – What international fees and/or penalty charges are there (other than those for Phyto.) for lumber wood?

What I do understand is that the 5 woods listed are not at a (decent) status of endangerment, since none of them are on the CITES or IUCN Red list. (One of Verawood’s species, sarmientoi, is on the CITES appendix II; aroborea, the other cousin species, however, isn’t; so, I am okay there.)

There may be more authoritative sites for this kind of information than LJs; I would check with places like the Indian embassy and perhaps the international trade organizations in the respective countries for actual binding answers as opposed to opinions of LJ members.

Not sure – you say Lumber logs….

From an import/export standpoint Lumber is different than logs.

Typically with fees Lumber can be exported…. logs are not

I’m inquiring about logs. Lumber (especially small turning blanks) I’ve shipped with little to no problem in the past.
