visiting Oz soon
Posted by Natasha Papousek on July 1, 2002 at 20:03:17:I have the amazing opportunity to visit northern Australia for a
couple of weeks (benefit to having a geeky spouse that travels for
scientific conferences in cool places), and of course, I want to take
some henna to play with. I haven't had a proper vacation in a
LOOOONG time, so I'm really looking forward to some playtime....but
I'm concerned that my henna will be confiscated at the border.
Import regs look really tough -- you even are supposed to declare
your herbal medicines!
I am hoping that if I call it "henna hair conditioner", the officials
will just ignore it... If I don't declare it and their herb-sniffing
dogs find it, then I'll be in deep trouble (not the most restful
thought for a vacation.)
Anybody had your henna questioned at a border?
