Acting Director of Kuwait General Administration of Customs (KGAC) Suleiman Al-Fahd issued circular number 9 of 2023; banning the import of all types of bird meat from Spain and 22 states in America, reports Al- Anba daily.
The directive prohibits the import of all kinds of fresh, chilled, frozen and processed bird meat, their derivatives and products, including table eggs, unless they have undergone heat treatment at 70 degrees Celsius. This is due to the outbreak of highly pathogenic bird flu as per the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
Meanwhile, circular number 8 of 2023 stipulates lifting the ban on importing all kinds of fresh, chilled, frozen and processed poultry meat, their derivatives and products, and table eggs from 16 American states and Ireland due to the end of the highly pathogenic bird flu outbreak in these places.
