Public Advisory to Poultry Importers

The Guyana Livestock Development Authority has advised that the importation of poultry originating from the United States of America is temporarily suspended. This is due to the prevalence of a Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in some parts of the USA, which poses significant health risks to Guyana.

The situation continues to be monitored by the GLDA who will advise further. The Ministry of Business will also continue to update Importers with regards to this issue as more information becomes available.
