Shipments of U.S. highbush blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum) to Indonesia must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by APHIS. Indonesia’s Agricultural Quarantine Agency only considers phytosanitary certificates valid for 90 days after the issue date. Limited exports of U.S. blueberries have occurred to the market. Although not listed in USDA regulations, an import permit is likely needed to export to Indonesia. Shippers should confirm an importer has an approved permit prior to exporting.
For 87 pesticides with U.S. blueberry MRLs, 79 pesticides have no Indonesia MRL established, and 4 have an Indonesia MRL more restrictive than the U.S. MRL. Eight (8) of these pesticides have an Indonesia MRL harmonized with or set higher than the U.S. MRL.
