Nope. Everything is not allowed unless approved on ICON.  This means it needs to be assessed and then they will give approval or not and if so apply any conditions. What do you want to send? Dont expect alot from federal quarantine. I went on to check the requirements for casimiroa edulis seed as i wanted to import casimiroa sapota, only to find seeds werent listed for import. So i rang aqis and spoke to a young lady. I asked her to double check that they hadnt failed to update the site, only to be told no one had ever imported these seeds and they would need a risk assessment at my cost. When i pointed out most fruit nurseries carried named cultivars of this tree, and had done so for st least 20 years she told me i couldn't be right and to check my taxonomy.  :o

Correctly mislabel, coconut. So long as whatever it is that is mislabeled looks very similar to the actual species, it will work.'

No myrtaceae are permitted entry due to rust, which isn't carried in seed. All recorded/named garcinia species are though...

Subject to conditions. Even seeds for sowing are meant to be reared in quarantine.

AQIS is that ultimate sump where  talentless drywombs, fuddy- duddies and drybobs who, having failed utterly via their own sloth and incompetence in the private sector, pool like so much effluent bi-waste in a gigantic drainclog of bureaucracy to sully and foul the initiatives and innovations of the industrially adept in the otherwise vibrant stream of commerce.

Its not fair really, with the CO2 emissions causing such problems you'd think we would be able to report the people in these departments for stealing oxygen but nooo,  and whats worse is they dont even do anything useful with it.
