Advice offered by APT members

Health & sanitary issues

APT members advise importers and exporters of plants, fish and food, about the different criteria to be fulfilled.

The import in Mauritius of Plants or Plant Parts (seeds, cuttings, cut flowers, fruits...) for personal or commercial use is regulated by the Plant Protection Act 2006.

Furthermore, a 'Plant Import Permit' is also required for importation of second hand agricultural equipment, tools and machinery.

Concerning fish and fish products, whether imported or exported, they have to abide by strict veterinary and health norms.
