What cannot enter Australia, not even in a pack
Australia, well known also as the immigrant’s country adopts a very strict import practice. This is of course also valid for goods; certainly not all of them can travel on the island or be shipped in a parcel.
Even in Australia there is still the distinction between two commodity groups: strictly prohibited products in all circumstances and goods that can be introduced with restrictions or accompanied by a certain license.
For Customs Services and Control of Imported Goods, is responsible the Australian Border Force (abbreviated ABF), a Department under the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. The ABF publishes a batch online with all prohibited goods, which are only marginally importable, and updates it continuously. On this list there are classic products, which are generally forbidden for packet shipment, but also for certain Australian features. There are few things prohibited in Australia. However, many other categories of goods, which are marked as restricted, are subject to equally severe standards:
For this reason, the following categories of goods are not advisable to ship in a package in Australia:
- Illegal narcotics
- Asbestos (or products containing asbestos)
- Products that contain cat or dog hair
- Ceramics (products sometimes contain a high percentage of heavy metal or lead and therefore can only be imported through a special license)
- Chewing tobacco or snus
- Lighters (maximum number for immigrants in Australia: 5)
- Means for self-defense such as pepper spray or other
- Cultural Heritage of Historic Value (especially from Papua New Giunea)
- Threads for strangulation or ropes for dogs
- Distillates, which look or smell like food
- Electric shocks over the 6 volt
In Australia without exception, it is strictly forbidden to import dangerous breeds of dogs (such as Dogo Argentino, Fila Brasilero, Japanese Tosa, Perro de Presa Canario but also the American Pit Bull Terrier) or even the entry of equipment created for make a subsidy. A special case is the goods, which contain the word ANZAC. This abbreviation is for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, which was a military body of the British Armed Forces in the First World War, formed by Australians and New Zealand. Still on April 25, Australia and New Zealand celebrate the ANZAC day in commemoration of the military casualty victims, a very controversial event.
As you can see, Australia has placed a number of very special items on the list of prohibited or limited import goods, which would not immediately remind the immigrant or the sender of an expedition. For this reason it is more than advisable to inquire before importing certain types of products in a given country. Australia has come up with a very interesting gadget: the country supports the "Can I bring it back?" App, a fast guide for travelers who want to know about the arrangements in place.
Precise information on prohibited or subject to restrictions when importing to Australia, as well as contact details to obtain any licenses, can be consulted on the official ABF website under: www.border.gov.au
