Egypt: Food and Agricultural Import Regulations and Standards Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   EG2022-0001

In June 2022, Egypt launched a trial phase of the Advanced Clearance Information system (ACI) on airfreight. The government is expected to fully apply the electronic ACI system in October 2022. This comes after the October 1, 2021, launch of the ACI in sea ports. Traders must register within the designated platforms (CargoX for exporters and ACI for importers). The Egyptian government will no longer require Egyptian embassy authentication on certificates of origin. According to the Minister of Finance, when successfully implemented, the new customs system will reduce the average clearance time from the current 28 days to one day. Egypt decided to import chicken parts including leg quarters from US and other countries. The decision is coming after the global developments that caused unprecedented rises in inflation rates. Egypt's halal requirement on dairy and dairy products is still under question.
