Bringing medication

Is it allowed to bring in a 5 months stock of birth control pill?
Is a doctor's proof needed?
Coming from Belgium.

All the conditions for bringing your own medication are covered on this site, you will need a Doctors prescription in English and it seems you would only be able to bring 3 months supply.

I think it is possible only if you have a justification

And you need to declare it on the Incoming Passenger Card under the first question: “Are you bringing into Australia: 1. Goods that may be prohibited or subject to restrictions, such as medicines, ...?”.
Failure to declare can have severe and expensive consequences if they catch someone with undeclared items.

Hi there

You can bring in medication but make sure you carry a letter from your doctor on any medications coming into the country. This is the case for travelling into any country, and is needed by Customs and Immigration. A doctors letter is a quick and easy fix to making sure you have everything you need.

Happy travelling
