    Take some deep breaths. It is possible that the rest of your order could be coming in a second packet still, you may see it in a day or two so maybe just keep waiting to see.

    It does sound like your parcel really got the run around.. so I 'd probably be concerned too seeing its been opened so much.

    Ive had a Australia post postal issues in the past week (not from there).. a neighbour showed up very early the other morning with one of my parcels. It had the right address on it but the postman delivered it to the wrong number. Thank God that neighbour was honest and brought the parcel to me. I spoke to the postman the next day about the wrong house delivery but he said there are others too who do the deliveries.

    Are the antibiotics or antifungals plant derived in any way?

    Australia has a lot of rules and regulations about importing both plant materials and foodstuffs.
    I would imagine bacteria and fungi would come under this too, and the meds might be derived from those sources.

    It's perfectly sensible - it's to protect Australia's incredibly precious biodiversity.

    @taniaaust1

    When large orders are broken up into separate parcels; EACH parcel has a unique tracking number that like last order, you are emailed when shipped each tracking number

    The current order was smallish and had lots of room left in the box

    @peggy-sue

    Current Import restrictions applicable to Australia http://www.health.gov.au/internet/m...es-compliance-prohibited-impexp-precursor.htm

    You will note there that there IS a general prohibition on the importation of Antibiotics, however Personal Importation of antibiotic substances for PERSONAL use attract SPECIAL conditions ie it is allowed

    Further just to complicate things; current Australian legislation does NOT list specific antibiotic compounds relating to said prohibition

    Peggy-sue I considered your thoughts and logically had to dismiss that process as if it were the case; Why didn't they remove ALL of the said antifungal and ALL of that specific antibiotic?

    *Also why would Customs place(like I mentioned previously)a 'No Items Have Been Removed By Customs And Border Protection' in the parcel?

    I received an email only today informing me that they have replaced the missing items and reshipped the order

    They said "we don't know what happened with this one, we have checked with the packing department and confirmed the whole order was shipped initially"

    Who do you believe?

    Due to ADC's track record ~

    I am guessing that 'unofficially' some Australian Customs f***** had a hankering for Rifampicin and some Itraconazol just for kicks. Top job fella :thumbsup:
