Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone has had any luck importing wholesale items from overseas (China, USA etc) to Perth in Western Australia?

I know importing to Australia isn't a big problem, but WA has their own rules and laws, and I don't want to waste a lot of money on stuff that will get me in trouble, or destroyed.


Thanks!

I wasn't aware that WA had different regulations, could you highlight the ones that are of concern and we can take a closer look at them for you.

Cheers

Hi Mad_Missi,

Like Marc, I'm not that familiar with the specifics but just in case I think you might find this guide helpful -

There are no exact areas of concern, I just know that when I moved over here from QLD, I was not allowed to bring certain things over the border. I just figured that if things that were already in Australia were not allowed over the border, there would be things from overseas that also would not be allowed.

Hi Mad_Missi,

I think they generally follow the same guidelines with most other cities. You can refer to this link to check which items are prohibited from importation -
