Information on importing dogs and cats into Australia, including information sheets, quarantine fees, application process, approved countries, and quarantine accommodation is available from the Department of Agriculture.
When importing a vehicle into Australia, you are required to obtain an import permit from the Department of Transport & Regional Services in Canberra, Australia.
You must apply for and be granted the permit before shipping the vehicle to Australia. Under no circumstances should you make arrangements to ship your vehicle until you are absolutely sure you have been granted this import permit. It is now an offence to ship a vehicle to Australia without the required permit.
Please note that 15% duty will be payable on the vehicle plus 10% GST calculated on the Australian Customs value of the vehicle, transport and insurance costs. Also 25% luxury tax may be applicable for vehicles. These duties/taxes will be required to be paid to Australian Customs before they will release the vehicle.
