Essential information for sending parcels to Australia...

What can you send to Australia?

In addition to the standard list of restricted and prohibited items that you can’t send by courier (in the UK or to any other country) Australia has some further restrictions.

Many of the restrictions on what you’re allowed to send to Australia have been set up to protect the agriculture, wildlife and natural habitats of the country. This means items like plants, seeds, soil, vegetables, fruit and food are not allowed.

There are also restrictions on leather products and anything else made from animal skins, ceramic products and you should make sure you don’t use any packaging which has contained food (for example, re-using egg cartons)

There’s a full list of restrictions and prohibited items over on the Australian Government Border Protection website.

How long does it take to send a parcel to Australia?

Our fastest courier service can get your parcel delivered to Australia in as little as 4 working days after collection, and our cheapest courier service to Australia can have it there in 4-7 working days.

It’s worth being aware that with your parcel traveling so far, there could potentially be delays based on a number of different factors including: where in Australia your parcel is going to, the contents of your parcel and whether there are any customs fees which need to be paid first.

What are the customs charges when sending a parcel to Australia?

When you send a parcel to Australia, you need to complete a pro-forma invoice which contains information for the customs agents in Australia to inspect before they can allow your parcel to enter the country.

If the items in your parcel are worth under $1000 Australian Dollars (approximately £488), you usually don’t have to pay any customs charges. 

For items worth over $1000 Australian Dollars, the customs fees will be calculated based on what the item is and the value. The customs fees will usually need to be paid by the recipient before the item can be delivered. For more information on customs clearance and how to work out what the customs fees for your parcel will be, Australian Government Border Protection can advise you.

My Parcel Delivery provide the pro-forma invoice for you to complete when you book a courier with us to ship to Australia. Be sure to complete this fully and to list all the items in your parcel. Then print 5 copies and place these in an envelope on the outside of your parcel.
