Maritime customs clearance/declaration in Australia
All goods imported into Australia need to go through the two-step process of customs declaration and clearance. According to the declared CVAL value, different declaration or tax payment treatment.
Goods under $1000:
For goods delivered by sea with a declared value of less than AUD $1000, these goods may be submitted to the Customs Border Protection (ABF) under the Australian style of Self-assessment Clearance (SAC) without formal customs clearance or import duties and duties.
Goods above $1000:
Imports worth more than A $1000 will be officially declared for duty payment. Among them, the fees to be paid are divided into four parts: Goods and Services tax (GST) + Customs DUTY + Customs service fee + customs clearance fee.
Fumigating wood products in Australia
The Australian Inspection and Quarantine Service requires all wood and wood products imported into Australia to be inspected at the point of entry or to be shown a valid certificate of fumigation prior to transport.
The fumigation method, by injecting the disinfection gas Methyl Bromide (bromide) into the cargo, is effective in killing insects but will have no effect on the wood itself and will not damage the cargo itself.
For fumigation, you must do formal fumigation, and don't be greedy for cheap and get fake fumigation certificate. If it is not recognized by the Australian Customs, it will cost more to do secondary fumigation in Australia, and the cost of secondary fumigation is as high as more than 1000 Australian dollars.
Note: The duration of fumigation is 24 hours, but due to the epidemic, the fumigation ranking and certification will be delayed!
