Egypt: Egypt's Prime Minister Waives Halal Certification Fees for Milk and Dairy Products Until October 1 22 - Halal Certification Requirement Still in Question
On March 14, 2022, under the Egyptian prime minister's direction, the General Organization for Veterinary Services (GOVS) distributed a letter with instructions for its veterinary posts across the country. The instructions state that all milk and dairy products could enter Egypt without a halal certificate. However, another letter was distributed on March 16, 2022, stating that milk and dairy products are permitted to enter Egypt with a certificate, but no fees will be applied until October 1, 2022. Post is working with the GOE authorities to clarify if the certificate requirement will stand. What is clear for now is that no fees will be charged for halal certification until October 1, 2022.
