Customs/Quarantine Declaration Cards

Advice from Sophia to students about to arrive from India:

Unlike India, Aus has very strict customs and quarantine laws, which people there aren't aware of (had to laugh when my grandpa told me to take mangoes with me). Don't bring any milk products or fresh fruit (they will throw these away/make u throw these away and if you don't or don't declare it, they will fine you). Some non/incorrect declarations can lead to prosecution.

So make sure you declare (by ticking off things on the form they give u on the plane), that you're bringing food, etc if u do bring food because the quarantine laws are really strict and you can end up with a massive fine or worse if you don't declare something you've brought with you (however minor you may think it is) and they find out.

Anytime I travel overseas (not just India cos I hardly go), I tick everything that I may remotely have. For example, I had antibiotics and on the checklist, medicines were categorised with non prescribed drugs or something along the lines of something illegal you may have... and I got asked about it and I'm like ye it was just antibiotics and the officers were like ye that's cool.

Also, you can bring more than $10000 into Aus but you need to declare that too on the same card.

Better to be safe and tick if you're unsure than sorry!
