After the occurrence of a "humiliating incident" overseas, the editor also hopes that all tourists must truthfully declare all their belongings when entering Australia!

Australian border inspectors destroyed nearly XNUMX tons of prohibited items at Sydney Airport alone last year.Including XNUMX tons of meat products, XNUMX tons of seeds, XNUMX tons of seafood, etc., XNUMX crawling or amphibians were confiscated. Some of the seized items were underreported, and some were deliberately concealed. Three people were prosecuted for this. Border inspectors issued XNUMX fines and fines totaling more than A$XNUMX.

Australia’s border inspections are extremely strict, and many food, medicines, animal and plant items are prohibited from entering the country.Such as meat dumplings, egg yolk moon cakes, melon seeds, beef jerky, Chinese patent medicines that tourists often bring.However, it is not difficult to avoid being fined. It is not difficult to understand the Australian border inspection regulations in advance, declare truthfully when entering the country, answer questions from border inspection officers truthfully, and cooperate with inspections to avoid a lot of trouble.

Although it is not recommended to bring food, animals and plants into Australia, if you do need to bring them, the embassy recommends that you declare truthfully when you enter. If you are not sure whether you need to declare, it is better to declare, or you can consult airline flight attendants or on-site immigration officials .


What needs to be reminded is that passengers must not deliberately conceal it by chance. Declaring does not mean that the luggage will be unpacked and inspected, but failure to declare truthfully may result in confiscated items, fines or prosecution.

In addition, self-defense spray devices, nunchakus and other martial arts products are prohibited weapons in Australia and require permission to possess or use them. Otherwise, they will be dealt with illegally and sentenced to prison.

You must also declare when you bring in or out of Australia with a foreign currency of over XNUMX Australian dollars or equivalent value. In January XNUMX, a Chinese citizen brought XNUMX Hong Kong dollars into Australia from Adelaide, South Australia, and was given a warning and fine for failing to declare. When leaving the country, he was detained for review for failing to declare.
