So have I, but you forget, CITES I import permits are at their discretion...the issue them IF they choose to, and need provide no reasons for declining....which I assume they must have done. Even when they approve a CITES I import permit, it usually takes about twice as long as CITES II permits.
: I applied for a CITES import permit to bring in three female Jamaican Boas (Epicrates subflavus), from Belgium. They are an Appendix I. species. I have imported CITES Appendix I. species before. It has never taken this long, nor should it, especially w/ all conditions being met.
