- Unless you have a special permit, you are not allowed to bring in foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables, meat products, rice, beans, eggs, and freshwater fish.
- Some commercially packaged seeds and prescription medication for personal use.
- If a traveller fails to declare or dispose of any biosecurity risk goods, they may be fined or face prosecution, and in some cases even refused entry into the country.
