Hi guys, please provide your suggestions for any of my questions mentioned below:

1. How can I send alopathy medicines from India (Mumbai) to Australia for personal use.

2. What all documents are necessary to attach with them?

3. How much time will it take to deliver the medicines?

4. What would be an approximate cost?

As always, Thanks smile

Go to the site medscourier dot com, fill in the details and check the cost of different courier services (UPS, FedEx, DHL etc). If needed they can even buy the meds for you online and despatch it to Australia. As usual the cost will depend on the weight of the package. Please be aware of the guidelines, restrictions and other conditions of sending allopathic medicines set by the respective governments of India and Australia.

It is easier to import/carry suchbthings in Australia if someone takes it in their baggage while entering Australia.
https://abf.gov.au/entering-and-leaving-australia/can-you-bring-it-in/categories/medicines-and-substances as their 'traveller exemption scheme' allows many of the prescription medicines IN LIMITED/REQUIRED QUANTITY to be carried by a passenger arriving by a seaport or airport, so long as they can produce valid prescriptions for the same.

In such case, subject to overall restrictions on how much medicines one can carry, Australia even allows one to import/carry as a passenger .. those medicines containing otherwise disallowed to import substances.

With Fedex or India post/ tie-up with Australian Postal Corporation, it might be better to be FULLY aware of whether there is even one percent chance of the package being withheld or even contents confiscated. Australia has infamy for confiscating (for destruction) of packages, items from even passengers. They then 'sometimes' also imposed financial penalties on the passengers.

The w/v (weight by volume) quotes from FedEx or others might be lesser for running accounts, than for the walk-in customers.

Like if one walks into a franchisee of an international cargo movers, why would they offer discounts on even the rack rate

if someone already has a long standing running account and also happens to frequently give business to the logistics company, freight forwarder
Got to find some company or friend, relative, acquaintance who is working with a firm which regularly uses the freight forwarder.. uf one wants to squeeze the best rates.

Just realised, now Australian Postal Corporation is simply called Australia Post.
