Health & Welfare Bulletin No.23 : Bluetongue

You should be aware that France have declared the whole of their territory as a BTV1+8 Protection Zone in order to allow compulsory vaccination against BTV1 in addition to the current voluntary arrangements in place for BTV8.  This means that all animals moving from France to GB must now comply with BTV1 conditions before they can be moved.  Broadly, this means animals being imported from France to the UK must be vaccinated against BTV1, and then serve a waiting period of 60 days (or quicker with a negative PCR test).
