2015-38 – Horticulture Exports Program – Resumption of exports of Oranges, Mandarins and Table Grapes to Vietnam

​17 July 2015

Purpose

To advise industry that the Vietnam Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Plant Protection Department has agreed to issue import permits for Australian oranges, mandarins and table grapes following the agreement of protocol conditions.

Background

The Vietnamese Government stopped issuing import permits for fresh Australian fruit from 1 January 2015.

Summary of changes and key points

From 15 July 2015, the Vietnam Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Plant Protection Department has agreed to issue import permits for Australian oranges, mandarins and table grapes.

Vietnam has issued protocols that outline the phytosanitary requirements for the importation of fresh oranges, mandarins and table grapes from Australia into Vietnam. These protocols are available in the Documents section of the Manual of Importing Country Requirements (MICoR) website. MICoR cases for citrus (oranges and mandarins) and table grapes will also be shortly available.

Import permits are not being issued by Vietnam for other Australian horticultural commodities until protocols for these commodities have been finalised.

The Department of Agriculture is continuing to work with the Vietnamese Government on finalising further protocols.
