As the busy USA shopping
season moves closer, it is good practice to review the list of Prohibited Goods for shipping to Australia
. This will give you a general idea of what is and is not permitted. However, your local customs office will have the most up-to-date list available and should be consulted. Breakable or fragile antiques and jewelry containing precious metals or stones are on the Prohibited Commodities list when importing from the US to Australia
. Restricted Commodities range from animal skins to foodstuffs to soil samples and tobacco. Should your item be flagged at customs, MyUS.com provides you with multiple options for the handling of the merchandise. We can return the US products
to the store for you, dispose of the merchandise or you may choose to have MyUS ship the item to a country in which the item is not prohibited.
Average transit times to ship from the USA to Australia
are also provided in this section. DHL, FedEx or USPS are options for which you can choose to have your items shipped. Courier Express offered through DHL Express or FedEx Priority can get your USA products
to most Australian cities in just three days!
The Australia Duty/Tax Free amounts are the declared value of your shipment which duty and tax will not apply. For Australians, you are able to import shipments with a total declared value of less than 1,000 AUD, without paying a duty or tax. Keep this figure in mind when consolidating your purchases for shipment.
As you begin your USA shopping
this season, be sure you review this section for your country. Knowledge will arm you with the tools needed to ship your items in a seamless and cost-effective manner every time!
