Australia’s customs rules have made the news time and again, like when actor Johnny Depp was told to remove his dogs from the country or they’d be put down. Now Australia is killing off any chance of waifus entering the county because we’ve had to stop shipping there.
DHL Japan called us last week, informing us that Australian customs have started rejecting packages containing any adult product. They then advised us to stop sending adult products to the country. Following that, current Australian orders with adult items in them were returned to us this week.
Adult items from J-List include onaholes, hentai manga, doujinshi, cast-off figures, JAV DVDs, and any product marked with a +18 symbol on the product’s thumbnail, as seen on the right (thanks for modeling that for us, Rem-chan). Unfortunately, using the Onahole Box Removal Service will not help a product slip through customs (it’s not what it’s for).
According to the Australian Customs official website:
Publications, films, computer games and any other goods that describe, depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, … in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults are not allowed.
Make of that what you will, but the best way to avoid getting anyone’s hopes up of receiving something new, shiny, and for adults only is to cease shipping adult products to Australia. We’re incredibly sorry about this. Fortunately, we can still ship anything else that isn’t an adult product to Oz, so maybe they haven’t banned all the fun, yet.
You can find a full list of the countries we ship to, as well as the status of shipping to those countries due to the current pandemic, on our Support Portal FAQ.
