The Australian government follows very strict biosafety rules. There are only certain foods that are allowed to be brought into the country during travel. A passenger recently flew from Bali to Australia. After landing in Australia, his bags were found by a sniffer dog to contain two eggs, ham and a ham croissant.

It was discovered that the passenger had given false information to airline officials, concealing the fact that he had food from McDonald’s. He was subsequently fined Rs 2 lakh.
According to Australia’s Agriculture Minister Murray Watt, ‘This is one of the most expensive McDonald’s meals. This penalty fee is more than double the airfare to Bali. But I have no sympathy for people who disobey Australia’s strict biosecurity measures; The recent incident shows that if you want to cheat, you will be caught,” he said.
