Importing items into Australia 

It’s important to be aware of the restrictions and regulations on importing personal effects and household goods. Australia has stringent quarantine regulations in place to protect the nation’s biodiversity and ecological equilibrium. All items that you bring with you to Australia from outside the country are subject to examination and potential quarantine by the Australian government. Of particular interest to quarantine regulators are items that have come into contact with plants, animals or soil from outside of Australia. 

Beyond following quarantine regulations, it’s important to be well aware of these rules and processes before making the move to Australia as there are fees associated with examination and quarantining of your effects. Therefore you want to make sure that you are

only importing items that are legally permissible and worth the cost of any potential quarantine fees that could be incurred. For more information and details about the restrictions on items that can be brought into Australia, visit the website for the Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment
