The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development's (DPIRD) Quarantine WA service operates border checkpoints as a first line of defence against incursions of unwanted pests, weeds and diseases, which could arrive on freight, cargo and other items brought in from interstate. Road checkpoints at Kununurra and Eucla operate 24 hours a day throughout the year.

Help us to protect WA from pests, weeds and diseases which could arrive on items you are carrying from interstate. Please place risk items in a quarantine bin or hand them to a quarantine inspector.

Under biosecurity legislation private travellers must declare all organisms and potential carriers to Quarantine WA immediately on arrival at a checkpoint. Commercial transporters must declare to Quarantine WA 24 hours prior to arrival via the 'notice of intent to import', which can can be downloaded from this page.

People moving their personal household items to WA should complete an 'unaccompanied personal effects declaration' in liaison with their chosen furniture removalist company. This form can also be downloaded from this page.

For general enquiries call Quarantine WA on +61 (0)8 9334 1800.
