Be careful when bringing herbal and traditional medicines with you to Australia. The Australian Border Force need to be able to identify what the substances are, so that they can determine if the products are subject to any import restrictions. Additionally they may contain ingredients from endangered plants which are subject to import controls and require a permit. This includes Hoodia and weight loss products derived from Hoodia. Find out more at the Department of the Environment website.
The traveller's exemption allows people entering Australia to carry their medicines and medical devices with them for their own personal use or the use by an immediate family member who is travelling with them, such as an infant.
Follow these simple rules to make sure you don't get caught up at the border:
1. Don't bring medicines or medical devices into Australia for anyone other than yourself or an immediate family member.
2. For prescription medicines, bring the prescription with you or have a letter from your doctor that outlines what you are taking and how much you are bringing with you.
3. Keep the original packaging for your medicines and medical devices intact so they can be easily identified.
4. Do not bring more than a 3 month supply with you.
5. Check what medicines need to be declared at the border at the Department of Home Affairs website on the Arriving into Australia webpage. You must declare any medicines which may be subject to abuse or misuse. This includes steroids, strong pain medicines, cannabis and other restricted medicines.6. Injections that contain material of human or animal origin, such as growth hormone, require special permission to bring into the country. An Australian doctor must organise access for you through the Special Access Scheme. You do not need permission to bring insulin with you for personal use.
