PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
ADVISORY ON CHANGE OF TAIWAN QUARANTINE LAW (12/2/19)
The Nigeria Agricultural Quarantine Service (NAQS) has been informed by the Taipei Trade Office, the representative of Taiwan’s interest in Nigeria, of the change in quarantine law in Taiwan. The new law has gone into effect. It imposes strict regulations for screening travellers entering into Taiwanese territory with agricultural products. It also stipulates penalties for any contravention and does not excuse ignorance.
To avoid unwitting violations of the new law and consequences attached thereto, NAQS wishes to advise all intending Nigerian travellers to Taiwan to consult the Agency for guidance on the compliance standards that apply under the current quarantine regime in Taiwan. They also advised to subject all animal, plants and related products they may wish to carry into Taiwan to the Agency for inspection and certification.
NAQS encourages all Nigerians to heed this advisory.
