:The importation of Reptiles & Amphibians from overseas into the US, and from the US to overseas is regulated and controlled by US Fish & Wildlife. There are no quarantine requirements for Reptiles of Amphibians. USDA has no authority over Reptiles and Amphibians for the importation process.
No permit requirements, anyway, but they do usually "do an inspection" i.e., the PQ stamp, as some airlines won't allow the shipment to be released until that clearance is given. There is a blurb on the USDA APHIS site about "although no permits are required...an inspection is done on reptiles"
