Customs requirements for imports into Australia

All goods imported into Australia must be cleared by Customs. Scarbrough can provide you information on duties and import regulations, such as import clearance requirements, prohibited goods  and import permits.

Depending on the type and value of the goods or products the consignee imports, there will be costs involved. These can include clearance fees, quarantine fees, customs duty, Goods and Services Tax (GST) and other taxes.

Some goods may carry special restrictions or may even be prohibited from being imported. If the goods contain industrial chemicals like cosmetics, solvents, adhesives, plastics, inks, printing and photocopying chemicals, paints, household cleaning products and toiletries, they will require additional registration.

If the goods also fall under quarantine regulations, the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (DAFF) will need to inspect and possibly treat them.
