Quarantine Clearances

All of our licensed customs brokers and our warehouse managers are Quarantine accredited and are re-accredited every two years to maintain a high level of expertise in the handling and clearance of cargo.


With the on-going threat of pest & diseases imported in Australia, Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (Quarantine) demands a high level of involvement in the protection against illegal entry of Quarantine Related Matter (QRM) into the country. Wallace International ensures all clients are aware of their obligations as importers, to comply with and understand the Act and Regulations that govern imported goods. It is essential for importers to ensure correct packing declarations and fumigation certificates are received in a timely manner to allow for possible inspections and/or treatments if required. Wallace International can also provide extensive knowledge in assisting applications for relevant import permits where necessary.


Quarantine and Customs Services have very strict rules and regulations regarding exports from Australia. Combining this with frequently changing import requirements from consignee host nations mean that exporting from Australia isn’t as simple as just sending your goods overseas. This applies to a diverse range of industries across Australia and some goods are heavily restricted and illegal without the proper documentation and procedures. By contacting an experienced Wallace International export staff member, you can minimise the risk of additional costs and delays to both you and your buyer by implementing best practice export procedures for your cargo and ensuring the correct documentation is applied for.
