If you are travelling with your family, you will need to include their documents as well.
Keep all documents in your carry-on luggage. In case you lose the originals, make copies that can be left behind with family and sent to you.
You need to be aware of what you cannot bring into Australia and therefore what you should not pack. It is illegal to carry drugs including marijuana, cannabis, heroin, cocaine and amphetamines in and out of Australia. There are a number of items that you must declare upon your arrival in Australia including:
Australian Customs Services and quarantine are considered to be quite strict. If you’re in doubt about whether your goods are prohibited or not, declare it anyway on the Incoming Passenger Card which you will receive on the plane. Students have received on the spot fines for not declaring items.
For further information visit the Australian Customs website: www.abf.gov.au/entering-and-leaving-australia/can-you-bring-it-in/overview and the following hyperlinks.
You should also be aware that as a routine part of their work, Customs and Border Protection officers may question travelers at any time, and trained dogs may also be used to detect illegal drugs or prohibited imports. If you are in doubt, declare your goods or ask a Customs and Border Protection officer for advice. Declaring goods does not necessarily mean your baggage will be examined.
People who deliberately break Australian Customs and Border Protection regulations could be fined or taken to court. You can also find information at the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.

Various other information on living in Australia
Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
Students are often surprised by how strict the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) biosecurity requirements can be.
Live animals, plants, plant material, animal products and some food from overseas could introduce some of the world’s most serious pests and diseases into Australia, devastating our valuable agriculture and tourism industries and unique environment.
So, it’s important to remember that when you’re packing to not bring fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, poultry, pork, eggs, nuts, dairy goods and live plants and seeds, as they will not be allowed into the country, and you would receive a fine.
You can also find information on what you can bring or send to Australia at the Australian Border Force Website.
