Buying NLS and getting it mailed to Australia?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if this is possible ,i have found on line stores and they say they will ship to Aus ,but will it pass at the mail centre here.

Am currently paying $58 minus the qld af discount for 600gm at Age Of Aqauriums,can buy it online for $24.00

Has anyone been successful ?

I have been told need import licence ,only want to buy small quantities...

Whats your thoughts on this subject...

contact the appropriate authorities , and your awnsers shall shine upon you, my thoughts though are , it would come through , sealed in jars , it gets xrayed , and comes to your door , know of others doing it , never done this myself, no different to clothing , jewellery, or sporting equipment

Also, I'm pretty sure another barrier is that there are authorised licensed distributers/wholesalers of such products in Australia (who are chosen by the owners/ manufacturer/company to exclusively import it into oz and then sell to shops etc.)

All you have 2 do is call customs. Inform them of your intention of purchase and request for importation. If required state that you will allow for package to be opened and seal broken if required too allow the product to be inspected. Ask seller to place inside package the NLS list of ingredients and information papers and she should be sweet. i Know a couple of people that have done this and been fine. Though its a hassle and shouldnt be done often.
