Sending a gift to Australia

Sending Gifts to Australia

If you want to send a gift to Australia, there are a number of important factors you need to consider. Whether you're sending a hamper, a Christmas present or a Birthday gift, the single most important thing you'll want to be sure of, is that you're gift arrives in time for the special day. Here are some things to remember when you send a gift to Australia:
1. You will need to produce customs paperwork which describes the gifts you're shipping, the reason you're sending them and their value. The ParcelHero booking tool will automatically generate this for you when you book online.
2. If your gifts are valued at less than AUD $1,000 you should not incur any import duty or tax, however for gifts over $1,000 Australian customs will apply charges of AUD $150 + 10% GST (Goods service tax). Remember it's the receiver that will incur these charges, not you.
3. It's therefore important that you do not ‘over declare' the value, as the receiver will end up paying a higher amount of duty and tax. For example if you bought the goods in a sale, declare the sale value not the normal price. The value should always be accurate, otherwise it may not be accepted by Australian customs.

Shipping luggage
excess baggage and personal effects to Australia

ParcelHero® can save you time, hassle and excess baggage fees by shipping your luggage or personal effects. If you're sending personal effects to Australia, as long as you meet certain conditions, your luggage should not incur any import duty or tax charges.

Conditions for shipping unaccompanied goods to Australia:

  1. The goods must have owned for at least 12 months prior to shipping to Australia.
  2. The owner of the goods must be a permanent Australian resident or a migrant taking up residency.
  3. Some items such as perfumes are not considered personal effects.
  4. The owner must complete a B534 form prior to shipping.

Sending food to Australia

Sending your favourites foods to a loved one on the other side of the world can be a fabulous gift! Whether your thing is marmite or vegemite, there is nothing quite like the taste of home! Unfortunately sending food to Australia can be a bit of a minefield, but don't worry because as always ParcelHero® is here to help.

Importing food for personal consumption is governed by the Australian department of Agriculture. Whilst there are grey areas and we always advise checking in advance of shipping, for your convenience we have prepared these guidelines for sending food to Australia:

What you can send:

Non-perishable foods:
a. Store bought food, in their (sealed) original packaging with a best before date more than 6 months away.
b. The label must list all the ingredients.

Examples of non-perishable goods:
a. Snacks, spices, tea bags, jams, canned foods.

What you cannot send:

Perishable foods
a. Any perishable foods including all home-made foods.
b. Foods with a best before date less than 6 months away.
c. Foods not in the original manufacturers packaging or not displaying the ingredients on the label.
d. Foods in packaging that has been opened.
e. Any dairy products, seeds, nuts, fresh fruit and vegetables.

Customs official

Australian Customs

Whether you're sending a parcel to Australia, or importing from Australia to the UK, you will need to complete customs paperwork declaring what your shipping and why. ParcelHero® will produce this paperwork for you during the booking process.

Most low value items travelling through customs do incur import duty and tax, however this depends on the goods you are sending and their value. You can check with the customs authority in Australia for specific import rates, but here is some basic guidelines:

1. Imports with a value under AU$1,000 are exempt from import duty, GST and all other customs processing charges.
2. All goods arriving into Australia valued over AU$1,000 are considered dutiable.
3. In addition to duty, imports into Australia also incur goods sales tax (GST) of 10% and will be subject to a customs service fee (normally around $150)
4. Duty rates range from 0-10%, with the average rate of duty being around 5%, however some goods such as some electronic products are exempt entirely.

Safely packaging your items inside the box

Safely packaging your gifts and items

When sending gifts, personal effects or any items to Australia, it's important to remember that your parcel will be handled multiple times, and may be subject to shock and vibrations whilst in transit.

Here's some useful packaging tips to ensure your goods arrive safely:

1. Don't overfill the box. Instead, use a box that's strong and large enough for the contents.
2. Wrap each item inside separately.
3. Fill the box with cushioning materials and ensure the items:
a. Are suspended inside the box
b. Are not touching any of the walls
c. Cannot move around inside the box

Shipping Large Parcels and Air
Freight to Australia

ParcelHero is a specialist in sending large and heavy parcels. Whether you're shipping a surf board, or have a heavy pallet delivery that you would like to send via air freight, ParcelHero® can help.

When sending freight deliveries to or from Australia, please note the following:

1. We accept individual parcels up to 1,000 kg in weight, however we recommend packages over 50kg are palletised.
2. We can accept items up to 270 cm in length.
3. If a package exceeds 50 kg, you will need to book the collection 24 hours in advance and provide assistance with loading and unloading.
4. Wooden pallets must be fumigated prior to export from the UK, in order to be cleared for import into Australia. If you are unable to get a fumigated pallet for your goods, then we recommend you source a plastic pallet instead.
