Importing & Exporting

If you import goods into Australia, you will be affected by certain government regulations.

The export of goods from Australia is controlled by laws and Government policies to prohibit the export of certain goods either absolutely or conditionally; and adequately record Australia's international trade.

Total prohibition applies to the export of protected wildlife, some heritage items, selected weapons and other dangerous goods. Goods which are conditionally prohibited from export may not be exported unless all necessary export permits are obtained from the relevant permit issuing agency.
