I have a question that is a little off topic. I am heading down to Australia for a little while and sent something in the post there that I am a little worried about being caught by customs (not supps). I was just wondering if something is caught up by customs what would it say on the tracking information? Would it say customs exception or something like that? I have sent things through and the tracking has said "Released by customs" but I would like to know what it would say if something was not cleared immediately. Thanks.

due to the shear volume of mail incoming into Australia, it is reasonable to presume that:
a) letters have little or no chance of being inspected
b) small packages have a small to medium chance of being inspected
c) large packages have a medium to high chance of being inspected

hi live in australia I was wondering what this list actually is

"Your item is being processed by customs in AUSTRALIA". If it stays like this for over 2-3 days, then most likely somethings up. The status wont change at all, if its held. You will only know once you get a letter in the mail.

Has anyone here had any problems with quarantine?
Ive recently had an order through (USPS to Sydney) and had FOUR items seized by quarantine.
2 x Tubs of Bulk Super Cissus RX (No ingredients list on the label)
1 x Tub of Banaba Powder (No ingredients list)
1 x Tub of Nos Ether Level 1 (Has Cnidium on the ingredients list, but not what type. The full Nos Ether has Cnidium Monnieri on the label. Dont know why level 1 doesnt)
Has anyone else run into this problem before? How did you get around it?

man nutraplanet sent them ingredients, USPlabs vice president sent them ingredients... the ingredients are also on the damn tub. Cissus Rx: Cissus Quadralaringus
it is because it is a plant product is what they told me! but the lady kept saying how i should buy from australia...i should buy from australia... buy from australia....
seriously terrible terrible government service
i got bulk cissus in last week and the week before through AQIS now they tell me it is a plant product too dangerous for australia, they tell other people the ingredients list problem... seriously WTF?!?! they make up their own BS... it is totally unreliable and unscientific

ive had heaps of bulk planet powder come through including the ones you listed, infact i just ordered some more, i dont see why it would be a problem but it might be worth us all talking to the planet about it to help stop this in the future

If anything, we should should start expressing our grief to customs more often.. but i doubt they would give a sh*t considering the issue is in regards to our aussie dollars going over to the US.
we need someone on the inside ... any politicians in here?? :P

I remember reading something about this on the old thread. If I remember correctly one problem was if you bought say a 1Kg of BCAA it would have on the cover 1Kg BCAA but no ingredient listing on the product. Now this makes total sense to us but apparently our AQIS and Customs need an ingredients listing on all products! This is were the manufacture can help by simply putting an ingredients listing/panel on all products no matter how obvious we think it is its not obvious enough in this country.
I do recall some members getting there products released after getting manufacture decelerations and the like I am sure whoever confiscated the product gives a letter with full details of what the problem was and what you can do.

"Basically ive had 3 seizures for PH's now. Once you get three they pay you a visit and warn you that the 4th seizure they will search your property n take you to court. No actual trouble as such, had to go down to the customs today to get the rest of my package. They let me keep the 2nd gear pct haha"
So this guy gets two notices then orders some more gets a visit? Then goes to the customs office presumably gives them id and gets his 2nd gear. That's like making a full admission it was his order. He must be seriously lacking in the intelligence department! If the notice was to me in my name I would have called them up and said WTF I never order this stuff what's second gear? .... guys please destroy it or send it back its not mine.

So stupid! I guess after he made three orders to the same address and name, calling him stupid is a compliment.
06-04-2009, 07:48 PM
So do you guys think I should take a chance with Bulk P-Slin?
06-04-2009, 11:55 PM
... I guess that's not much help to you is it Best advice make the order if you can afford to lose it. Maybe Steveo can chime in with some feedback from N.P??????????? re p-slin and shipping it down under.
