Items you will need when clearing immigration upon entering Australia
When you arrive in Australia you should have the following documents ready for Customs and Border Protection clearance on arrival at the inwards immigration control point:
- Passport and your completed Incoming Passenger Card
Australia has strict Quarantine laws. Visit the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service website for information on what you are not allowed to bring into Australia. For example:
- Items made from wood, plant and animal material must be declared upon arrival.
- You are not allowed to bring in fresh food or egg products even in powder form into Australia, including dried or packet food.
- You MUST declare ALL food items in your possession or risk an on-the-spot fine. Adelaide has a diverse population, so products from most regions in the world are readily available. You can probably buy most of your favourite foods here instead of bringing them with you.
On most campuses, students usually dress informally. Jeans or pants with t-shirts, sneakers or ‘running shoes’ are almost standard dress. Shorts are often worn during the summer months and sandals are the most common footwear. Warmer clothing, jumpers or jackets will be required for the winter months.
It is acceptable for both men and women to wear shorts and sleeveless t-shirts. This is common during the hotter months.
For festive occasions, you may want to bring traditional dress and accessories.
Eynesbury does not require students to wear a uniform.
All electrical goods are available in Australia, so you can buy anything you need once you arrive. If you would prefer to bring your own electrical appliances, please be aware of excess baggage costs when you are checking in. In Australia, we use Australian standard 240V, therefore you may require an adaptor to use electrical appliances from your home country. These are very easy to find in Australia.
