DUBAI: The UAE has temporarily banned the import of all species of domestic and wild live birds, ornamental birds, chicks, hatching eggs and their non-heat-treated waste from East Malaysia (the states of Sabah and Sarawak).

The UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) took the decision as precautionary measures following a notification issued on Monday (Aug.6) by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) after the outbreak of a highly contagious strain of H5N1 bird flu on a farm in East Malaysia.

The ministry has also temporarily banned the import of poultry meat and non-heat-treated by-products and table eggs from the state of Sabah.

However, thermally-treated poultry products (meat and eggs) have been cleared for import from all parts of Malaysia.
