Important information for veterinarians travelling on live export ships
Recently, a veterinarian working on a live export ship was not able to immediately return to New Zealand at the end their voyage. To prevent this happening again, we suggest several points are clarified with the export companies, prior to veterinarians sailing (or accepting the risk if these issues are not addressed). We do not have clarity of how this process is being managed currently – it is understood that veterinarians caught up in a delay/alternate port will not be afforded emergency MIQ space.
The NZVA is engaging with the exporters, via Animal Trade Advisory Council, and will provide further information when it comes to hand.
