Information for incoming travellers can be found on the Customs and Border Protection Website. Please check this site carefully to ensure you will not get into trouble bringing prohibited foods or medicines into Australia. Regulations are very strict and customs officials will take any undeclared items away from you.
This is very important information to know before coming to Australia. To help keep Australia free from pests and diseases, quarantine laws are very strict at all Australian international airports and mail centres. Please take the time to read about what you can't bring into Australia?
Before your plane lands in Australia you will receive an Incoming Passenger Card. This is a legal document and must be answered correctly. If you are carrying any food, wooden materials, animal or plant products you must answer YES. (If you are unsure always declare the items).
All luggage is screened by customs officers, x-rays and detector dogs. If you make a false declaration or fail to declare any items you could be charged an on the spot fine, prosecuted or imprisoned.
It is important to tell your family and friends which items cannot be sent to you while you are in Australia. Many of your favourite foods are available in all of Australia’s major cities, including Adelaide.
