Provide the necessary approved arrangement

The document will help define the head of livestock and the number of consignments that the license holder may be allowed to transport internationally together with the applicable charges and fees.

Submit a financial record

You may also need to attach an audited financial statement along with your application form. You may submit your profit and loss account or your assets and liabilities.
