Exporting Plants and Plant Products from Victoria
Private (non-commercial) travellers
A summary of plants and plant products which may be taken from Victoria into other Australian states or territories is provided in the Traveller's Guide to Australian Interstate Quarantine
Interstate authorities may place restrictions on the movement of plants, plant products related materials into their state. Entry into another state may not occur unless the material is certified as having been treated or inspected in accordance with the quarantine conditions specified by that state - see links below.
Plant health certification
A Plant Health Certificate may be issued by an authorised DPI inspector to facilitate the export plants and plant materials. These are used to certify compliance with quarantine conditions specified by another State, before movement into that State. Plant Health Certificates may also be issued for intrastate movement where quarantine conditions apply to specific areas within Victoria.
Interstate Certification Assurance
As an alternative a business may be accredited under a national Interstate Certification Assurance (ICA) system that allows the business to treat and certify the plant or plant materials. ICA arrangements allow clients to respond quickly to market demands whilst still meeting interstate quarantine conditions.
Most States and Territories have quarantine conditions in place concerning the movement of nursery stock (bulbs, potted plants, bare rooted stock, advanced trees) and leafy vegetables. Growers may be accredited to issue certification permitting movement of stock to another State or Territory.
