Australian Customs Information
When shipping items to Australia, you are legally required to complete and send a customs invoice with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects or a gift to a loved one; if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. My Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to complete, print and sign when you send your luggage to Australia with us.
Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no association with any customs authority; we do advise doing your own personal research into Australian customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Australia. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Australia and be sure to follow any and all advice provided by customs directly.
It is important to be aware that any shipments containing any restricted items such as foodstuffs, seeds/nuts or wooden products may result in the shipment having to be cleared by Australian quarantine, which can result in customs delays and charges.

As import allowances, security and customs processes differ around the world; we recommend that you do your own personal research into what may be prohibited in your destination country. Australia, for example, goes to great lengths to protect its stunning natural environment and habitats from harmful diseases and pests; this means that many products, goods and even some packaging materials are prohibited to use.
To avoid any major issues, avoid the following packaging materials:
- Egg cartons
- Wooden boxes
- Cardboard boxes that have been used to hold fruit, vegetables or meat
- Straw material
- Dried plant material
What type of packaging can be used?
When shipping your belongings to Australia with My Baggage, recommend using either suitcases or strong cardboard boxes. Or, of course, you can use a mixture of both!
We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as they are not covered by our compensation cover. We also recommend that you tape over any handles, etc to protect them. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled (or even triple-walled) cardboard box as they are most durable and suitable for transit.
