For any consignments intended to be re-exported from the UAE, the exporter must advise the Authorised Officer at the time of making an appointment for inspection.

​Where applicable, the exporter is to provide evidence attesting to the endorsement and present it to the Authorised Officer at the time of inspection.
Requests by exporters for additional endorsements of chickpeas being exported to the UAE may be complied with where it is known that the consignment shall be re-exported to another destination through a re-export phytosanitary certificate.
Exporters who require endorsements for re-export purposes are to provide written evidence of the additional endorsements which Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment needs to certify on the Phytosanitary certificate. Requests are to be emailed to for action.
