Iran - Summary of Requirements for Live Animals
Relations between the US and Iran are restricted by the US Department of State. There are no bilaterally agreed upon trade protocols for US animal export. However, some information is available for select species such as cattle. Please contact your local VS Area office for current information.
Exporters wanting to ship livestock or germplasm should have the interested party (importer/buyer) in the country of destination apply for an Import Permit at the appropriate foreign ministry. This Import Permit will most likely outline the specific requirements.
