Cambodia Lifts Ban on Imports of Frozen Food from India

Phnom Penh: The General Department of Customs and Excise of Cambodia has lifted its temporary ban on the import of frozen meat and other frozen foodstuffs from India. The ban was put in place at the beginning of May, owing to the surge in Covid-19 cases on the Indian sub-continent. Given the improving situation in India, imports can now resume, but with “terms and conditions”.

The new measures have been described as “interim” and are expected to be relaxed if India’s Covid-19 situation continues to improve, but in the meantime, Indian food imports will need an additional certificate stating that there is no Covid-19 on frozen meat. Samples are also to be taken on arrival and tested for Covid by the Institute Pasteur.

The General Department of Customs and Excise has stressed that the precautionary measures are temporary. It says they will be completely removed when the pandemic situation has eased in India and when test results of imported food samples have been shown to be consistently negative.
