Importing into Victoria
The movement into Victoria of plants, plant products, equipment and soil may be subject to a prohibition, or to one or more conditions which may include chemical treatments.
The Plant Quarantine Manual provides details of all requirements for the movement into Victoria of plants, plant materials and related items.
The current pdf and word version of the Plant Quarantine Manual can be accessed as follows:

Some items may need to be presented to an inspector on arrival for checking of details such as correct certification, labelling or treatment.
Businesses may be accredited by the department under a compliance agreement to perform these checks on behalf of the department.
Restrictions on importing plants and plant products into Victoria apply equally to items purchased online via the internet. The availability of an item on an internet-trading site does not imply that it is legal to import it into Victoria or that importation is unrestricted. The buyer must comply with state quarantine regulations when importing online purchases.
