As per the advice provided on
MAA-2023-01, on 11 January 2023, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) received formal advice from Papua New Guinea's (PNG) National Agriculture Quarantine & Inspection Authority's (NAQIA) suspension of issuance on import permits for eggs and egg products from Australia,
effective from 6 January 2023. Consignments of egg and egg products already departed from port of loading and enroute to PNG prior to 6 January 2023 will be accepted.
Exporters are advised to immediately cease requesting health certificates for the export of eggs and egg products to PNG.
Consignments sent after 6 January 2023 will be detained upon arrival in PNG and it is unlikely that the department would be able to facilitate release of consignments while the ban remains in force.
