Biosecurity Requirements

Tasmania has some of the world's most stringent biosecurity regulations. Please help us retain Tasmania's disease-free status by ensuring that when you visit you are not carrying or importing any restricted items.  Everyone arriving in Tasmania must discard all fresh fruit, vegetables and plants prior to their arrival, even if they’re only travelling from mainland Australia.  There are sniffer dogs at Tasmanian airports, and quarantine inspection posts at the Devonport ferry terminal.
