Post-entry quarantine facilities for plants

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has recently completed construction of 12 new Level 3B post-entry quarantine (PEQ) greenhouse units at Mt Albert, Auckland and expect to open the facility to new imports in September 2024.

Interested importers are now invited to submit their expressions of interest for booking PEQ space. Applications can be completed online, where you’ll also find important dates and information to help with your application.

If you have any questions about the process please contact [email protected] or see here for more information.

When MPI consulted on imports re-starting on this pathway, KVH provided input on behalf of the kiwifruit industry on the Import Health Standard (IHS) for Actinidia plants for planting, to ensure biosecurity risk is managed to an acceptable level.

The IHS sets out import requirements and our input focused on the importance of carefully managing the pathway, and included specific technical advice we commissioned from experts in the science community in New Zealand and overseas.


KVH investigates reports of unusual symptoms to identify and manage any biosecurity risks.
