The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) formerly known as Australian Quarantine, have notified industry of their Xmas period closures and staffing arrangements.

Please note that this will have a potentially significant impact on how we are able to do business in and around these closures with respect to clearing goods which are under a profile with the department.

To ensure we have as best chance as possible of avoiding any potential delays, please ensure your documents are complete and submitted to our office for clearance at least 7 days prior to arrival and most certainly prior to the Xmas period.

For full details on the DAWR arrangements, please view their full notice here http://www.agriculture.gov.au/import/industry-advice/2018/175-2018
