Bermuda: FAIRS Annual Country Report Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BD2021-0001

The United States is far and away Bermuda’s main agricultural trading partner, accounting for nearly three quarters of its imports of agricultural and related products. Bermuda is very receptive to U.S. products, and thus the list of items that carry specific import requirements is quite small (mainly live animals, meats, plants and plant products, and seafood). This report outlines Bermuda’s import requirements for food and agricultural products, which U.S. suppliers should not find difficult to comply with.
