Importing Poultry & Captive Birds into the Isle of Man

There are currently no health certification requirements for the importation of domestic fowls or captive birds that are in free circulation in the United Kingdom. 

However, please be aware of any restrictions due to Avian Influenza.

As the whole Island is currently a surveillance zone, this prohibits the importation of any poultry to the Island at this time.
