Biosecurity regulations

Tasmania is renowned for its pristine wilderness and rugged beauty. This is, in part, due to the strict Biosecurity regulations enforced by Biosecurity Tasmania. 

Many industries including agriculture, tourism and conservation rely on the work of Biosecurity Tasmania to ensure our island state remains bug and pest-free.

How can you help?

When disembarking an aircraft at Hobart Airport, you will be asked to dispose of or declare any goods that are not permitted in Tasmania. These items should be placed in the biosecurity bins located inside the terminal building. You will be greeted by a friendly Biosecurity Tasmania officer and detector dog who will inspect all hand and checked luggage.

For information about what you can and can’t bring into Tasmania, please contact Biosecurity Tasmania or phone:
