Border Control

The Agricultural Board were always expected to do their own border controls, including the issuing of permits and the checks and control of cross border flow of agricultural products.

AMTA is appointed as the agent of NAB on 1 January 2015 for the practical implementation of issuing the permit & for border control.

Border Control is a very important function for the NAB to implement the local Market Mechanism successfully.

Specially for Horticulture Products. Traders must first have bought 46% locally before a permit can be issued to import fresh fruits and vegs.

With other special controlled Horticulture products like Potatoes, Onions, Cabbage, Butternut, Tomatoes, Carrots or Green Peppers, special border control is done. The Borders also close for the import of White Maize when local farmers harvest and market their produce.
