The Colombian Agriculture and Stockbreeding Institute (ICA) informed that the passengers of international flights that arrive in Colombia will be able to bring in shoulders and hams (cooked or cured bone-in) from Spain.
The Institute adopted this measure bearing in mind the result of the risk assessment carried out by the Andean Community that, together with the involvement of the ICA, recognised Spain as a country free from African swine fever, classical swine fever and swine vesicular disease. These diseases restrict the international trade of these products.
Currently, pasteurised dairy products (up to 5 kg) or of a single cheese of not more than 10 kg, of cooked or cured bone-off vacuum-packed sausages (up to 10 kg), and of processed or pasteurised honey (up to 3 kg) from any country are allowed to enter Colombia as luggage.
