AQIS/Decontamination fees

Recommended Posts

Can anyone offer some advice on the AQIS and decontamination fees? Is it worth adding them on to the cost of our shipping? I understand from our shipping company that the AQIS fee needs to be paid regardless? Also with the decontamination service - is this just decontaminating the outside of our container or is it inside too? We are dubious to not be ripped off by our shipping company with the quote! Thanks for any advice offered.

Yes, pay that fee whilst in the UK. We paid our UK removals agent a NES fee and a Container Indemnity Fee.

And once in Australia, there will be more costs. We have just paid a Quarantine Inspection Fee & Port Infrastructure Surcharge, aprox. $275.00.

And we have had to leave our goods in storage for a few weeks until we can move into our house. Thats more fees. Storage & Handling aprox. $150.00 and a weekly storage fee (of a few dollars)

We used a shared container.
