Therapeutic goods imports

Therapeutic goods include medicines, cosmetics, herbal remedies, essential oils and certain sports and dietary supplements. Most therapeutic goods are not classified as food products. If you intend to import therapeutic goods you are required to contact the Therapeutic Goods Administration for further information and the Australian Customs Service for correct application of Tariff codes.

Many of these products must be accompanied by an Import Permit and there may be quarantine conditions that will apply. For further information on quarantine conditions, please use the contact details below;

Therapeutic goods must be declared on arrival in Australia. Further certification or endorsements may also be necessary and the Import Permit will outline these additional requirements. For specific details, please refer to the AQIS Import Conditions Database (ICON) prior to import.
