Passengers travelling to the European Union are requested to ensure that all plants, fruits and vegetables are free from plant pests and diseases and that they are not prohibited from entering EU territory. Regulated plants and produce must be checked by a local plant health authority in sufficient time prior to your "take off" to the EU! For regulated goods, freedom from pests and diseases must be stated in a Phytosanitary Certificate (PC) issued by a local competent authority.

Please note the following regarding regulated goods destined to enter EU territory:

  • All regulated items to be declared on arrival
  • Shall be accompanied by a valid PC (the original document, no copy will be accepted).
  • Shall be declared at customs or at a plant health authority at the point of entry.
  • Are subject to phytosanitary checks at the point of entry.

If these conditions are not met, your valuable perishables or plants may be rejected, and a caution may be issued. Moreover, you may be charged for the safe destruction of your rejected goods.​
