Exchange Rates

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The customs value of imported goods must be expressed in Australian currency.

Foreign currency must be converted into Australian currency at the rate of exchange prevailing on the day of export of the goods (for example, not on the day the goods arrive in Australia).

The Exchange Rate is determined by the Comptroller-General of Customs.

The Exchange Rates are consolidated weekly and published in the Government Gazette each Wednesday.
