SERVICES / Parcel Post Customs Clearance

Save Time on Parcel Post Customs Clearance

Importing goods can be a cost-effective option for many people in Australia, but Customs and Quarantine Regulations can be an obstacle for those without the right knowledge and experience. If you have ordered a parcel from overseas with a value of more than $1,000 AUD, the Customs Act 1901 requires that it either be cleared by yourself or by a customs broker.

When your parcel arrives into the country, Australia Post will send you a notice advising you of what is required to clear your parcel. If you choose to customs clear the parcel yourself it can take up to 10 working days. If you ask Melbourne Customs to process the parcel post shipment, we will process the clearance on the same day that you email all of the paperwork.

The process of clearing parcel post through customs and quarantine

After you contact us, we’ll email you a list of the documentation that we will require:

  1. A copy of the Australia Post letter
  2. An authorisation form
  3. Photo identification
  4. An invoice from the supplier

Once we receive these documents, we will clear your goods on the same day and then Australia Post will deliver them [generally within 3-5 working days].
