What can’t I send internationally?

All countries have different specifications of what they will import and export.

It is the sender’s responsibility to research and comply with:

  • the rules and regulations of the country of import, and
  • the rules and regulations of the country of export (Australia)

If you do not comply with these regulations, you may be liable for additional charges.


As a starting point, you may wish to use the following resources to assist your research:
