Pet Birds Not Allowed to be Imported into Australia

Name: Vicki

Subject: Pet Moving An African Grey Parrot

Question: My sister emigrated to Australia how can her African Grey Parrot of 25 years join her please. I live in London and would handle all arrangements. Thank you, Vicki.

Answer: Hi Vicki,

Unfortunately, Australia has very strict requirements regarding the import of pet birds. Any birds not coming from New Zealand with the exception of pigeons are not allowed to be imported into Australia due to bird flu scares.

For further details, please see the AQIS Website here.

Sorry that the answer could not be better. Perhaps you can care for your sister's parrot until her return.

Good luck with everything!

Hi Vince! Unfortunately only dogs & cats can be imported into Australia at this time. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!
