UAE lifts a ban on Kuwait poultry

The United Arab Emirates lifted a ban on all imports of live domestic and wild birds from Kuwait it had imposed in February following a bird flu scare. According to a notice issued by the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MoCCAE), domestic and wild live birds, ornamental birds, chicks, hatching and table eggs, poultry meat, and their thermally non-treated products from Kuwait can now be imported to the UAE.

The ban was implemented following a notification from the Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases of the outbreak of a highly contagious strain of bird flu (H5N8) in Kuwait.

Kuwait is one of the Gulf Countries with a high rate of self-sufficiency on poultry and almost 100% self-sufficient on eggs.
