It is a condition of travel that passengers comply with Tasmania’s strict biosecurity regulations. Please be aware that any fruit, vegetables, plants, honey, fish or fish products cannot be brought onto the ship and must be declared and/or disposed of prior to boarding. Biosecurity inspections will be completed prior to boarding at the Geelong Terminal, with random inspections taking place during disembarkation at the Devonport Terminal.
Boats and fishing gear must be clean and dry; vehicles must be free from visible signs of soil and mud.
All dogs entering Tasmania are subject to biosecurity entry conditions and must be treated for Hydatid Tape Worm within 14 days prior to entering Tasmania. Documentary evidence of this treatment must be carried by whoever accompanies the dog into Tasmania and presented at time of inspection.
The evidence can be:
• An official statement/certificate by a vet;
• A statutory declaration by the owner; or
• Other evidence of treatment (such as the pill packet and purchase receipt)
For more information free call Dogs to Tasmania Hotline on 1800 684 215.
Non-compliance with the above may result in severe penalties imposed by Biosecurity Tasmania.
