Import Conditions

Import conditions define the biosecurity requirements which must be met for your import. Where import conditions have been developed, they will be listed below.

  1. Prior to the importation of goods into Australian territory, a valid import permit issued by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment is required.

    An import permit may be obtained by submitting an Import Permit Application to the department (if viewed online, use the 'Apply Now' button at the bottom of this page).

  2. Warnings and Information Notices

    Important reminder to importers

    Goods that require a valid import permit, but arrive without one, including where an import permit application is currently under consideration, will be directed for export from Australian territory or required to be destroyed in an approved manner.

  3. Under the Biosecurity Charges Imposition (General) Regulation 2016 and Chapter 9, Part 2 of the Biosecurity Regulation 2016, fees are payable to the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment for all services. Detail on how the department applies fees and levies may be found in the Charging guidelines.

  4. In addition to the conditions for the goods being imported, non-commodity concerns must be assessed including container cleanliness, packaging and destination concerns, and may be subject to inspection and treatment on arrival.
