Hi Maddison, add the packing declaration and you have most things covered. But it all depends on more detail. If you are importing a couple of boxes with multiple amounts of one product, the commercial invoice can serve as the packing list. Your carrier / freight broker will supply the Bill of Lading. The CHAFTA Certificate of Origin normally costs USD50 – USD70. If the shipment value is under AUD1500 its probably not worth paying for a COO.
Fumigation is a sensitive issue. You must be certain to get the goods fumigated by a business that is recognised and approved by Australian Border Force, Quarantine. There are some dodgy certificates! The packing dec. must be on a specific template. Change the wording and it will not be accepted . Email me and I can send you the template
