UPDATE – 15 August 2022
Final import health standards released
We’ve released the final import health standards for importing fresh citrus for human consumption.
To ensure uninterrupted trade during the current import season, MPI has determined that citrus consignments from specific countries certified under previous citrus standards can receive clearance at the New Zealand border until 31 October 2022.
Version 1.2 extended the transitional period and removed Egypt and the United States from the document.
Guidance for import health standards
There is a guidance document to explain the process of inspection and clearance of fresh produce at the New Zealand border.
