    Pork to Thailand, will Australian customs allow you to take it out?

    Don't try it for NZ - recent case involving attempting to import three pork sausages -

    Ministry for Primary Industries, Vatau Sagaga asked for the penalty starting point to be $20,000

    Guessing Thailand not so bothered as they already have a prevalence of foot and mouth in their pork industry, but the estimated cost of infected pork to NZ is $5.8 billion for a single outbreak of foot and mouth transmitted by imported meat product.

    April this year two Thais fined $1900 for biosecurity breach, bringing 2 pork sausages to NZ -

    "Pork is prohibited from entry into New Zealand and is considered especially risky due to the prevalence of foot-and-mouth disease in Thailand. Biosecurity breaches have huge impacts on the country as a whole and have the potential to have a serious impact on our international reputation as well."

    I think i had better check the regulations.....

    That said, its not exactly "raw" Pork... but rather Pork that has been processed (with curing agents) and cooked.

    Better to be safe than sorry i guess, so i will check

    How could FMD virus enter Australia?

    Australia doesn’t allow imports of any susceptible live animals, semen or uncooked meat or unprocessed dairy products from FMD-affected countries or zones. FMD virus is most likely to be introduced in contaminated, illegally imported animal products.

    strange times we live in, May I flew Sydney to Bangkok, at Sydney the ever vigilant customs man took my almost empty 110g toothpaste tube, as their legal limit is 100g... pointing out it was 80% empty didn't change things, because "it has 110g written on it"

    Just give customs a call and ask.

    Not sure about the other side.
    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards.
