Fruits and Vegetables Import Requirements (FAVIR) Online Database

Notice! As a result of a rule published by APHIS to streamline the approval process for fruit and vegetable imports, requirements for the importation of fruits and vegetables that were previously located in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) have been moved to the FAVIR Database effective October 15, 2018. As a result of this change, the Fruits and Vegetables Manual has been decommissioned and is no longer available. All content regarding entry requirements for fresh fruits and vegetables is located in the FAVIR Database. To learn more about the updated FAVIR and what has and hasn't changed, go to Streamlining Approvals for Fruit and Vegetable Imports Web page.

APHIS launched a new searchable online database, known as the Fruits and Vegetables Import Requirements (FAVIR) database. FAVIR allows customers to search, by commodity or country, for authorized fruits and vegetables and their requirements for importation into the United States. View the above link to access the online database and for additional information related to FAVIR.
