    Default Meat ban in Moz

    Hi
    We are traveling to Mozambique on the 28th. Could anyone confirm whether we can take steaks into the country.

    You will only encounter problems in Swaziland no problem at the Mozambique border.

    Swaziland is a disaster at the moment when it comes to meat. Ban still in force

    only local beef available in the shops, the good stuff gets exported so consumers are left with barely edible beef.

    The only organisation that can actually lift this ban is the World Organisation for Animal Health and here is the lastest update from their website pertaining to SA.

    and if you want to see it graphically

    So officially the ban is still in place, but it is possible that lax customs officials are turning a blind eye but you will be taking a chance.

    AFAIK the ban is in place.

    Rather donít take banned products, even if you may get away with it.

    Thank you.

    If I understand correctly, it has been lifted for processed meat products?

    The meat ban has not been lifted. It's still a problem.

    Becareful, anything our Ministers say is actually wishful thinking, only when Bots or Moz say they're happy to accept our meat can you say that you're okay. The question is why would they do this if it puts their exports at risk.

    Oky, so reading the articles posted by Malcolm, and some others it would appear that some movement between TRADE PARTNERS in neighboring countries have been lifted for certain processed products.

    So either way, ban is still in place

    That's my reading of the situation as well. The Drivebots and DriveMoz facebook pages are indicating that some people are not being checked for raw meat but others are, so things are variable on the ground.

    That what is happening can be understood for what the statement indeed says. ie;

    they seemed to be relaxed in terms of checking LOL.

    I know the department of agriculture here in Eswatini is not issuing any import permits yet. As for individuals driving through it's a gamble, I was in and out Oshoek twice in the last 2 weeks and on both occasions they did not even ask to check our boot. Had nothing anyway

    And then acquaintances had to leave quite a substantial amount of meat and delicatessens in the border freezer after coming from shopping in Nelspruit. They can come and get it when they have a permit, no permits getting issued yet.

    Not really an update, and have no idea if the meat ban is still in force, but we were not searched (2 vehicles) and neither was any other of the 5 vehicles that arrived with us at the Kosi bay border post.
