Search OMARS

Check the Overseas Market Access Requirements (OMARs) for your export product and destination.

Search OMARs

Countries and markets that have agreements with New Zealand for products entering their borders are listed in the box below. Some OMARs are password-protected (null) as they may contain market-sensitive material.

Select a market using the dropdown arrow on the right and choose the country or market you are exporting to. On each countryโ€™s page you can navigate to relevant OMARs for animal products, dairy, wine or organic products by using the left-hand menu.


Apply for an OMAR password

In some cases, you need a password to view OMARs because they contain commercially sensitive material. This applies particularly to OMARs for animal products. You do not require a password to view OMARs for wine or organic products.

You can only get access to these documents if you are:

  • a New Zealander registered with MPI under the Animal Products Act 1999 as:
    • an exporter
    • an operator
    • a third party agency or service providers
  • an official of the relevant importing countries.

If there is no OMAR for your destination

If you cannot find the market you are looking for, then no specific requirements have been negotiated with MPI at this time. It is your responsibility to check and comply with any requirements for markets not covered by an existing OMARs.

OMAR notifications

OMAR notifications are used for urgent product or country-specific requirements. They also include General Requirements for Export (GREXs), which set out general requirements to ensure that animal products are eligible for export.

When you sign up to receive exporting email updates, if you check the animal products box in the sign up form, you'll receive OMAR and FYI notifications.
