Post entry quarantine facility

​​​​We have built a new Post Entry Quarantine (PEQ) facility on a Commonwealth owned site in Mickleham, Victoria. The new PEQ facility will consolidate all of the department’s current PEQ operations into a single site in two phases. Phase 1 of the facility was officially opened on 26 October 2015 by the Hon. Barnaby Joyce MP and is now operational for the import of bees, cats, dogs, horses and plants.

Construction of phase 2 of the facility will be completed by 2018. After this all other department-operated PEQ facilities will close and all imported animals and plants will complete post entry quarantine at the new facility in Mickleham, Victoria.

If you require assistance or further information about booking your plant or animal into the new PEQ facility, please see the webpages for importing cats and dogs, horses, plants and bees. More information about transporting your cats and dogs to the new facility is on the Cat and dog arrival windows into Mickleham page.

Information about the design, construction and transition of operations to the new PEQ facility is available on the PEQ GovSpace website.
