For Migratory Beekeepers:

If you need an Apiary Permit or a Certificate of Apiary Inspection for out-of-state movement, schedule an inspection with one of our inspectors and then contact the state apiarist to issue a permit or certificate.  There is a flat fee of $50 for permits/certificates. (Most states require certification to bring in bee hives.)
