On November 29, 2008, the Australian Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry decided to prohibit export of live-stock to Egypt unless the live-stock are cattle and the following conditions are complied with:
- Before cattle are exported to Egypt, the exporter must ensure that they are individually tagged with a functioning radio tracking device that has been inserted into the animal, or that forms part of an ear tag, for the purpose of tracking the animal.
- At least 14 days before the expected date of export of a proposed consignment of cattle to Egypt, the exporter must give AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service) a written statement by:
(a)a competent Egyptian authority; or
(b)the operator or manager of the port, feedlot or slaughterhouse; that quarantine space is available for the expected weight and number of cattle in the proposed consignment.
On March 14, 2014, the Australian Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry repealed the export restriction measures taken on November 29, 2008.
