Importing country requirements

It is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the animal meets the importing country requirements. Additional information to assist exporters with how to prepare reproductive material for export is available on the Department’s website.

Exporters must obtain an import permit from the Kingdom of Thailand Department of Livestock Development and meet the import health requirements specified by the Thailand Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives.

Where an importing country issues an import permit, the exporter must ensure the animal meets any requirements in the permit.
