Moving deer into Victoria

There are no specific identification requirements when bringing deer into Victoria.

Health requirements for imported deer

All livestock brought into Victoria must be free of notifiable diseases.

Diseased livestock can only enter Victoria under a licence, usually only direct for slaughter at an abattoir. In some situations, we might issue a licence to introduce the animals to another Victorian property.

These licences are issued by the Chief Veterinary Officer Unit at Agriculture Victoria.
