Ban on import of poultry from 5 countries – Live birds, chicks allowed in

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 2: Ministry of Commerce and Industry has issued a temporary ban on the import of poultry (live and frozen) from five countries based on the recommendation of Food Safety Committee, reports Al-Rai daily. The decision includes all kinds of poultry and its derivatives, in addition to egg — unless it’s been processed thermally under temperature of 70 degrees Celsius and imported from Britain, Canada, Romania, Hungary and Portugal; indicating, the ban on poultry from the above-mentioned countries excludes eggs.

Meanwhile, the ministry has lifted ban on the import of all kinds of live birds, incubating eggs, and day-old chicks from Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania and India. However, shipments from these countries will be required to undergo necessary tests at the Department of Animal Health of Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR). In an unrelated development, Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) announced that over 123 million dinars has been paid in rent allowance to citizens who qualify for housing in the last seven months, reports Al-Qabas daily.

A source said about 117,000 citizens who deserve housing have benefited from rent allowance. He noted the rent allowance for some 1,428 citizens were stopped for various reasons, while the sector registered 7,163 new applicants for housing welfare for the current fiscal year.
