Namibia: Namibia Relaxes Ban of Poultry Imports from South Africa

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On July 24, 2017, the Namibian Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (MWAF) announced that it had relaxed the import suspension of poultry and poultry products from South Africa after it was introduced on June 23, 2017. However, only poultry and poultry products originating from certain “compartments1 ” approved by the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) to be free of bird flu can now be imported into Namibia. More than 75 percent of the Namibian poultry meat imports come from South Africa. Therefore, the suspension of poultry and poultry product import from South Africa led to a shortage of poultry meat in Namibia hence the amendment of the poultry import ban.
