Permit to Import Restricted Plants and Plant Products - Tasmania


You will need this permit if you intend to import restricted plant matter into Tasmania from another part of Australia. Permits are granted either on a case by case basis, or by the Agency to a general class of persons, such as all importers of a specific class of plants and plant products.

Restricted plant matter is prescribed by the Agency and can include:

  • plants
  • plant products, such as dried plants, the whole or part of any flower, fruit, nut, seed, leaf, bulb, corm, tuber or stem that has been separated from a plant, or any dried plant material and timber that has been sawn or dressed.
  • carriers such as soil.

For a full list of restricted plants and plant products please refer to the Plant Biosecurity Manual, a copy of which can be obtained from the agency. All plants and plant products entering Tasmania must be accompanied by Approved Plant Health Documentation from the state of origin, certifying that they meet the entry conditions for Tasmania.
