If you are:
- a privileged individual*, you can import your personal effects into Australia to use during your posting free of all customs duties, taxes and related charges. Personal effects can include a vehicle you have been using in your country of residence or during a previous posting.
- an administrative and technical staff member, or a consular employee, you can import your personal effects free of all customs duties, taxes and related charges only within the first six months of starting your posting.
In both cases, you must have been the legal owner of any vehicle before you enter it for home consumption in Australia.
* A 'privileged individual' is the head and other consular officer of the consular post, head and any other member of diplomatic staff of the mission and accredited staff of overseas mission and international organisation.
