Medicines to be brought from PH to Aus

BagonglumaBagongluma Quezon CityPosts: 9Member
Tanong ko lang po kung may limit bang magdala ng general medicines katulad ng Biogesic, Bioflu, Diatabs, etc. tsaka kung kailangan ba ng medical prescription?

Also required po ba magpa-medical pag alis or bahala na ang company na mapapasukan sa Aus para don?

Salamat po sa sasagot

    Basta declare it all, especially food and plants. With the medicine declare it as well. Let the customs officers decide if it's safe to bring in or not.

    Hello po! Can I ask if pwede mag dala ng 1 year supply of birth control pills, specifically Althea? Kasi I heard na medyo mahal pag bumili sa australia and doctor fee pa.I will be doing internship so medyo kailangan tipid ako sa gastos kasi sakto lang ang sweldo. I have to take kasi I have PCOS. I have the letter from the doctor naman. Kasi nag search din ako and may nakita ako na like nagdala sila ng 1 year supply ng pills and it was okay daw basta mag declare, although the passenger is from another country baka may experience kayo na ganyan or know someone na pinoy. Thank you so much po!

    @chefy101 It should be okay as long you have the letter from your doctor and as long as you declare it on your oncoming passenger card.
