Due to the recent detection of the Khapra Beetle in Australia, the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) have redeployed a number of staff to deal with the threat of invasion.
As a result of this redeployment, the industry is experiencing delays in entry processing through the DAWE system. Current delays, as of today, are as follows:
- Inspections: 10+ days
- Document processing: 7+ days
- Release of cargo after treatment: 2+ days
Please contact your local Expeditors representative for more information.
