Market Access List

The following is an edited and translated version of the list of fresh fruits permissible for import into China provided by the General Administration of Customs of China (GACC).

Updated May 20, 2024.

Notes:

  • We have followed the GACC’s ordering of continents, but for the list of countries/regions within each continent, we have rearranged them into alphabetical order according to each region’s common English name
  • Latin names are as written in the GACC document
  • Bolding and underlines were added by Produce Report to improve readability
  • The order of fruits within each country/region is the same as in the original GACC document, and generally reflects the order in which the fruits were granted permission for import into China
