Indonesian citrus quotas
The Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA) will come into force on 5 July 2020. The agreement will put in place reduced tariffs for exports of citrus fruit.
Quotas under the IA-CEPA cover:
- lemons and limes
- mandarins, clementines, Wilkings and similar citrus hybrids
We manage these quotas on a first-come, first-served (FCFS) basis.
The quota year runs in line with the calendar year.
- 1 January—New quota year commences
- 31 December—Quota year ends
How to apply
Exporters will need to apply to export citrus to Indonesia at the reduced tariff rate.
You can apply for a quota certificate from 5 July 2020.
To apply for a quota certificate you must:
- lodge a request for permit (RFP) through the department’s electronic documentation system, EXDOC.
- complete and submit the IA-CEPA horticulture TRQ certificate application (available from 5 July).
Once we have approved the application, we will email you the quota certificate.
Changing or cancelling your certificate
Contact Quota Admin if your quota certificate needs to be:
- changed (you will need to submit a new application form if there is a change to the exporter, importer, product type or quantity of product)
