The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment has introduced a comprehensive plan for the Eid Al Adha sacrificial season. This includes providing all essential supplies, diagnostic tools, and a team of specialists to inspect animals intended for sacrifice to ensure they are healthy and disease-free.

Also, the ministry will adhere to all protocols and rules regarding the issuance of permits for the import of animals and sacrifices through various entry points in the country.

Teams from the ministry's food diversity and regional sectors have committed to ensuring compliance with all standards and procedures for importing animals and sacrifices via the country's ports. This includes guaranteeing that these animals are entirely disease-free, in line with an ongoing coordination mechanism that operates throughout the year, especially during the Eid Al Adha season.

The ministry announced that from the start of 2023 until mid-June, they have received and approved the entry of 366,035 animals, including sheep, goats, cows, and camels, through the various border ports of the state. This approval comes after the animals undergo necessary veterinary quarantine procedures and clinical and laboratory examinations to ensure they are healthy and free from any contagious, epidemic, or zoonotic diseases. This number signifies an increase of 12 per cent from the same period last year when 326,913 animals were received.

The ministry has arranged for all necessary supplies, technical and diagnostic resources, and specialised personnel to inspect the incoming shipments, ensuring the health and disease-free status of the animals.

Mohammed Mousa Alameeri, Assistant Undersecretary for the Food Diversity Sector at the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment said: "Through its precautionary measures, the ministry conducts periodic follow-ups on the epidemiological health status developments of countries around the world through its integrated digital systems for monitoring epidemics. It also undertakes preventive measures to ban the import of live animals and their products from affected countries, only allowing imports when declared free of infectious and epidemic diseases."
