The ministry says it will intensify inspections of travelers' luggage and deploy sniffer dogs at Gimpo International Airport and Incheon Port.

It also plans to carry out a promotional campaign next week to warn people not to bring livestock goods illegally into the country.

Carrying undeclared overseas livestock goods will be subject to a penalty of up to 83-hundred U.S. dollars.
