Shanghai Customs Quarantines 15 Racing Horses Imported from Hungary


In Shanghai Customs District, 15 racing horses from Hungary were recently quarantined in a special quarantine station under the control of Huangpu Customs House. The customs officers carefully checked chip information, clinical health, and blood sample of every horse. After the quarantine period, these racing horses will be settled in Shanghai-based equestrian clubs. 


On the first Import Expo of last year, Shanghai Equestrian Association and Hungarian Equestrian Association reached their strategic cooperation agreement on bilateral trade of racing horses. On October 18, the 15 racing horses, as the first batch, were imported by air into Shanghai from Budapest, Hungary just before the opening of the second Import Expo, demonstrating China’s further opening-up to the outside by the Import Expo event and its innovative practice of the “Belt and Road” Initiative.

On their arrival at Pudong International Airport, these Hungarian horses were immediately inspected by the Airport Customs House and then transited to the special quarantine station, where they were quarantined for 30 days by Huangpu Customs officers in line with China-Hungary protocol of quarantine and health requirements on Hungarian horses imported to China. Meanwhile, the officers actively collected and assessed epidemic information of Hungarian horses to secure the Entry Quarantine Permit for this import.
