The Mizoram government has lifted the ban on the import of pigs and pig products after more than a year. In an order issued on Monday, the government stated that the import of pigs and pig products has been allowed to some extent as the outbreak of African swine fever is more or less contained and no new cases of ASF have been reported since January this year.

Earlier, imports of pigs and pig products were banned on August 17, 2020. Meanwhile, now with the lifting of the ban, prior permission for the import of pigs and piglets needs to be obtained from the state animal husbandry and veterinary science department, while pigs and piglets should be purchased or imported only from pig disease free states and neighbouring countries.

Imported pigs should possess a health certificate and a Common Swine Fever (CSF) vaccination certificate, and the same should be produced by the owner at the animal check gate.

According to the animal husbandry and veterinary science department, the ASF, which was reported in March last year, has claimed 29,824 pigs, affecting 272 villages across all 11 districts. About 10,381 pigs have been culled to prevent the disease.
