Australia

Please find updates and service restrictions concerning shipping to Australia below:

General Information for Australia

Customs regulations apply for territories outside of the EU. Please refer to our Customs Information.

When sending personal effects to Australia, the owner of the goods must complete a Unaccompanied Baggage Declaration (right click, Save As to download), and may be asked to provide a copy of their passport and relevant visa to customs. Clearance delays can occur.

Not all carriers will deliver personal effects to Australia. Please see carrier restrictions below.

Goods and services tax (GST)

From 1st July 2018, Australian goods and services tax (GST) will apply to sales of low value goods (consignments valued up to AUS$1000) imported by consumers into Australia.

Businesses that meet the registration threshold of AUS$75,000 (including merchants who sell goods, electronic distribution platform operators and re-deliverers) will need to:

  • register for GST
  • charge GST on sales of low value imported goods (unless they are GST-free)
  • lodge returns to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO)

Businesses should not charge GST on a sale when it is worth over AUS$1000, or if multiple goods will be shipped to Australia in one consignment worth over AUS$1000, as GST, customs duties and clearance charges will be charged to the importer at the border. This also applies to the import of tobacco products and alcoholic beverages.
