The gradually tightening Australian customs seems to be in charge of everything. Just a few days ago, the Australian Border Force (Australian Border Force) posted a post on its Facebook to warn overseas passengers who need to enter:The customs staff has now begun to "crack counterfeit"! If you wear it on your body, have a fake brand name (A goods) on your hand, or carry pirated movies and TV series, then you may be fined! If you are carrying illegal pornography, you are more likely to be arrested!

(We are already organizing training courses for our staff to teach them how to identify fakes. These courses allow our staff to receive practical training to help them identify the fakes that passengers want to bring into the country...)

With the prevalence of fakes, many "pseudo celebrities" and "pseudo-rich second generations" are all "famous brands" and travel the world in business class every day. However, next time you come to Australia, these people's fakes may be confiscated, fined, and even more serious may be refused entry.

On the government website, fake luxury goods are clearly listedRefusal to enter AustraliaRequirements. These items include:There is a brand logo, forged copyright, or high imitation clothing, handbags, shoes, cosmetics, perfumes, hair straighteners, etc...

In addition, pirated movies and TV series are not allowed to enter the country.

Of course, there are some people who do not want to "show off their wealth", but want to save money and buy "high imitation" luxury goods. however,After all, imitation products are not original and genuine products. It is recommended that you try not to bring them when you enter Australia next time.I also want to remind everyone here:If you are buying luxury goods, you must carefully identify the authenticity. It is best to go to flagship stores and other brands that actually operate stores, or go to the brand's official website to make online purchases.Some people may have paid a lot of money to buy A cargo without knowing it, and finally enter Australia, the customs may directly fine you!

In addition, illegal pornography is also prohibited from entering the country!
