Moving goats into Victoria
Goats entering Victoria must:
- have a National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) ear tag (unless it's an exempted breed)
- be accompanied by a completed National Vendor Declaration (NVD).
A National Goat Health Declaration (GHD) completed by the vendor is also recommended. The receiver must keep a copy of the GHD for consignments of goats entering Victoria.
Health requirements for imported goats
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.
