​​The information on these pages will assist visiting foreign military forces and the Australian Defence Force when entering or returning to Australia.

We recommend you read the frequently asked questions and cleaning requirements for equipment and vehicles. It should be particularly noted that there are biosecurity risks associated with foods. Ration packs/meals ready to eat (MREs) require an Import Permit prior to import.

The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment​ may be able to assist military forces that have a large amount of equipment coming into Australia by inspecting equipment offshore. See Australian Defence Force or Offshore Inspections or Visiting Military.
