The Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration announced on Monday that rice importers have until Friday to clear their shipments from customs terminals.

Rice imports are banned in Iran every year from late June to late November to support local farmers and domestic production, Mehr News Agency reported.

The ban pertains to grain order registrations during the abovementioned period, meaning orders placed before the ban may be entitled to customs clearance past the deadline.

Iranians consume 3.2 million tons of rice a year, of which about 1 million tons are imported.
