Transfer of Residence in Australia - ABF

Expert Assistance for a Seamless Return with Relocate MENA

As you plan your return to Australia as a resident with your household goods and effects, Relocate MENA is here to help you navigate the customs process, ensuring a stress-free and efficient experience. In this guide, we will outline the key steps and requirements of the Australian Border Force (ABF) process for importing your belongings duty-free and tax-free.

Understanding the Australian Border Force (ABF) Process

The ABF process is a vital component of the relocation process for individuals returning to Australia with their household goods and effects. By meeting specific eligibility criteria, this process enables you to import your belongings without paying import taxes and duties. It’s crucial to familiarize yourself with the requirements to ensure a seamless customs clearance experience.

Applying for Duty-Free and Tax-Free Import with the Unaccompanied Personal Effects (UPE) Process

To be eligible for a duty-free and tax-free import of your household goods, you need to complete and submit Form B534 (Unaccompanied Personal Effects Statement), which is part of the Unaccompanied Personal Effects (UPE) process. This form requires you to provide your personal details, Australian address, and a detailed inventory of the items you plan to bring with you.

Once completed, you must submit the form to the ABF, which will review your application. If approved, you can then share this information with your chosen moving company, like Relocate MENA, to facilitate the customs clearance process for your household goods and effects.
