Longan fruit from Vietnam

We finalised the risk analysis for fresh longan fruit from Vietnam.

It is recommended that the import of longans from Vietnam be permitted provided it meets our biosecurity import conditions.

Eleven quarantine pests and two regulated articles (regulated thrips) associated with longans are present in Vietnam, and need risk management measures to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. A range of measures are recommended to reduce the risk of these pests arriving in Australia via the longan fruit pathway.

We released a draft report for fresh longan fruit from Vietnam on 10 December 2018, for public consultation. The consultation period closed on 25 February 2019.

All submissions were considered in finalising the risk analysis.

You can read the final risk analysis report as well as our responses to stakeholder comments on the draft report.
