|Taking PBS medicines overseas
Travellers taking PBS medicines overseas should make sure the medicine is legal in the country they are travelling to by contacting the relevant embassy, high commission or consulate before leaving Australia.
If you are planning to take PBS medicines overseas for your own personal use or the use of someone travelling with you, you should:
Customs may detain any medicine suspected of being illegally exported. It is in your best interests to have a letter from your doctor explaining what the medicine is, how much you are carrying and that it is for your personal use. If you are unable to get a letter from your doctor, the Medicine Export Declaration form may be enough to let Customs know the medicine is for your personal use. People found to be illegally exporting PBS medicines overseas may be prosecuted.
