​​Why can’t we carry Plants, Seeds and Soil on international flights?

There are restrictions on carrying plants, seeds, and soil on international flights due to concerns about the spread of plant diseases, pests, and invasive species that could harm ecosystems and agriculture in the destination country.

Plants and seeds can carry pathogens and pests that are not present in the destination country, and if introduced, they could damage the local ecosystem and agriculture. Invasive species can outcompete native species, reducing biodiversity and disrupting ecological balance. Soil can also harbor pathogens and pests, and its introduction could disrupt the soil composition and ecosystem.

To prevent the spread of these threats, many countries have strict regulations and inspections for plant and seed imports. Therefore, it’s essential to follow the rules and regulations of the destination country and declare any plants, seeds, or soil you may be carrying. It’s always best to check with the relevant authorities before you travel to ensure you are not violating any regulations and risking the introduction of harmful pests and diseases.
