    If you are crossing national borders you need the appropriate permits. Bringing fish into the USA requires an importation permit, entry through a “designated port of entry” an appointment with a US Fish and Wildlife inspector, and possibly export permits and veterinary certificates. CITES is not generally relevant to fish as only one or two freshwater species are on the list.

    lucky for her. I just don’t want to get fined at the airport or stopped. Someone told me I just need a certificate of quarantine about $3 from Thailand. Thanks for your suggestions.

    Depending on the price, quality, and species, you may be able to just buy one once you get back

    Yes he has awesome betta. The Transhipepper I contacted quoted me $56 shipping to my house for up to 3 betta from Frank’s. Who’s I’ve know I would have ordered with you and split the shipping
