Importing products into Australia

To help protect Australia’s unique environment from unwanted pests and diseases, the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment regulates products imported into Australia.  The importation of some products is, by law, subject to certain biosecurity import conditions.  Some products are not permitted entry, while other products are only allowed into Australia subject to meeting import conditions that mitigate the biosecurity risk.  This may include a requirement for an import permit.

You can use the Biosecurity Import Conditions System (BICON) to determine whether a commodity intended for import into Australia:

  • is permitted
  • is subject to import conditions
  • requires supporting documentation
  • ​requires treatment
  • needs an import permit.

It is your responsibility to comply with the department’s import conditions when importing into Australia.
