It's no problem importing varanids from Europe.
Most are appendix 2. The exporter will need to apply for export permits in his country. He will need to prove legal orign to be granted and export permit..
You shouldn't need anything at your end except
you US F&W import/ epxort license.
It costs 50 bucks a year, and you need to apply for it.
The goods must be flown into a USF&W designated port for inspection and completion of the 3-177 form.
Please note that Australian species are problematic for export from the US due to Lacey Act, not CITES.
Importing should be OK, bet indviduals wanting to export Australian wildlife will have to prove how it got into the US legally to start with. Since Australia doesn't allow trade in their wildlife and hasn't exported in years...this is causing lots of trouble wit permit apps often denied.
