Live Animal Import Ban Includes Cattles from China


The government has officially issued the Trade Ministry Regulation No. 10/2020 to temporarily ban live animal imports from China following the outbreak of the new coronavirus, officially named COVID-19. The regulation is a response to the World Health Organization’s statement that COVID-19 is a public health emergency affecting people all across the world. Hopefully, the ban on live animal imports could at least minimize the spread of the virus.

Coming into effect on February 7, 2020, the regulation states that the government has the authority to ban any live animal import from China or transit in China. If the importers have already purchased live animals from China, they must send it back to the country’s origin or kill the animals as soon as possible with their own money. The government will sanction importers refusing to send them back or kill them in 10 days.
