Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture has announced it has launched a licensing service to import fresh vegetables and fruits. It aims to continue the flow of fresh vegetables and fruits to enhance food security, control the quality of imports and protect the Kingdom’s plant wealth.
The Ministry clarified that the procedures for issuing the license begin with applying electronically through the link.
The request will be studied within three days and will notify the applicant of the outcome of their application, provided the rejection is justified. As soon as the approval is issued, the relevant Agriculture Ministry agency will issue the import license and will be valid for between three and ten years, depending on the license category.
