Animal Products

Category: Sample Data-Articles Published on Wednesday, 28 May 2014 Written by Super User

The term animal products cover a wide range of items that have been manufactured from, or contain, parts of animals (hair, skin, bone, feathers).


Some of these products may be prohibited or restricted because they are either still capable of carrying disease, or can harbor insect pests.

Please Ensure that any Imported Animal Products acquire an Import Permit before arrival. 

Examples of Animal Products that require an Import Permit and inspection upon arrival include;


- Feather items
- Carvings with animal hair attached
- Eggs, for eating, or as painted souvenir
- Animal skins, drums or other musical instruments with a skin content
- Dog chews, dried pigs or cow ears
- Animal horns

Always declare these items, and if in doubt ask a Quarantine Officer for advice. Some items may be prohibited entry, and others may require treatment before entry can be allowed.

Please be aware that there are severe penalties for non-declaration of risk items.
