Prohibitions on in-bound international air cargo from Turkey - electromechanical devices weighing over 1kg

 

We wish to advise our customers that the Australian Government has recently imposed prohibitions on the carriage of air cargo that has originated from or transited through Turkey. This prohibition only relates to electromechanical devices weighing over 1kg.

Examples of these items include manufactured goods with an electric motor such as an electric powered sewing machine.

This legislation change is in addition to existing prohibitions on the carriage of air cargo that has originated from, or transited through, Syria, Egypt, Bangladesh, Yemen and Somalia.

Further details of the prohibitions can be found on the Australian Government’s Office of Transport Security website.
