Shipping goodies from Peru

Recommended Posts

So a good friend is off to Peru for 10 days and is going to hunt around for some bits and pieces for me. What are the legal requirements to send cacti from Peru to Aus?

Could be tricky.

I’ve done a bit of research since my post. Seems like a bit of a minefield. Not really a process I could get sorted in a hurry that’s for sure.

Takes a lot of time and money if done "appropriately"

Well Off topic but Dutch seed banks no longer send seeds concealed to australia for almost a 1-2years now,  to much hassles with them being siezed. That said if you did send them worse case you get a warning letter from customs saying they have been siezed but nothing usually happens after unless its a commercial quantity of prohibited drugs. So i hear ;)   Try send some Coca seeds see how ya go :lol:
