Australian customs

Know what to expect when you enter Australia. The Australian Customs Service (also called Customs) is very strict. Take your time for departure/arrival it might take some time to pass through customs. Often there are huge rows because the airport security have been tightened. Especially when you make your first big trip, do everything equally well to slow down, so you do not get in the plane stressed out.

 

What may AB-SO-lutely not enter the country:

Vegetables

Fruit

Cookies

Meat

Bread

Candy

Nuts

Seeds

Other comestible

Soil / sand (usually sits on the soles of poles)

During your air flight, the crew already have asked you if you have something declare. If you carry anything of the above goods / food with you, check the box 'yes'. The customs does not matter about it, but you should not hide it.

 

There are high fines / imprisonment on smuggling goods. But they won’t fine you when you leave your plane and have left everything in the plane (behind). Or when you simply have indicated it on your form. These fines / penalties are really just for people who lie about their brought goods or when they are trying to smuggle in goods.

TIP: tick it on the form, that you (might) have something to declare. (Everyone who enters Australia must fill it out). The Australian customs will view these goods in the scan and usually you can just take it (things like candy or liquorice).

 

In some cases, customs can be very strict about electronic equipment. This is not because you are not allowed to take it with you, but because these equipment is hard to detect on the scan to see what kind of object it is. So make sure that your electronics (if necessary in an equipment bag) are on top of your backpack / suitcase. Then you do not have to dig the lot or unpack.

 

What does your packing list look like? And what should you pack for your hand luggage? You can read it all here.
