We rang the CITIES permit office just a few months ago. They were very helpful in trying to provide a permit for us to post a blackwood flute to Canada. They said however that because the new legislation they had been inundated with requests and there was a 4-6 month wait for permits. The helpful lady added "do you not know anyone travelling to the destination and that they may carry it for us". I pointed out that we were trying to follow the legal process but she added that "everyone else does it".

I think that this arose out of frustration on the part of the permit office and clearly they are struggling.
