Australian Border Protection

Customs and Quarantine

Australia's customs laws prohibit you from bringing drugs, steroids, weapons, firearms and protected wildlife into Australia. Some common items, such as fresh or packaged food, fruit, eggs, meat, plants, seeds, skins and feathers, are also prohibited. There is no limit on currency but you will need to declare amounts over AUD$10,000. For more information visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.


Medicine brought into Australia for personal use is subject to controls and must be declared on arrival. It is recommended you bring a prescription or letter from your doctor outlining your medical condition and the medicine you are carrying. For more detailed information go to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.


You don't need vaccinations unless you have come from, or have visited, yellow fever infected country within six days of your arrival. However, regulations and medical advice can change at short notice, so check with your doctor and the Australian Department of Health before you leave home.

Travel Insurance

Taking out a travel insurance policy that covers theft, loss, accidents and medical problems is highly recommended. If you plan to do any adventure sports, such as scuba diving, bungee jumping, motorcycling, skiing or even bushwalking, check you are fully covered under your policy. The Australian Government has reciprocal health care agreements with some countries through Australia's public-funded health service, Medicare.
