New Regulations by many countries concerning plant product imports (including seeds) are being enforced.  Regulated countries now require phytosanitary certificates, and special shipping documentation which APS cannot provide.  APS will not ship to countries outside of the United States and Canada.

APS no longer ships seeds overseas through commercial growers, under their phytosanitary certificates (this is illegal). Thus, seeds cannot be sent to countries requiring phytosanitary certificates or otherwise.  Worldwide, most countries now require these certificates and APS will not send them to these destinations.  Please know your country’s import requirements prior to contacting APS for seed shipments.
