Quarantine Clearance Services
In Australia, The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (Quarantine) are responsible for managing Australia’s imported and exported goods to assure that they meet Australian and Foreign Government laws and regulations. Australia has strict quarantine laws to protect its flora and fauna, among other biosecurity threats, which can make importing goods to our country a little more complicated than you’d suspect.
