Honey bees and beekeeping
Rules about moving bees, equipment and products
The import of bees, apiary equipment and bee products - including honey - is strictly controlled to prevent the spread of diseases.
You are not allowed to bring beehives, including used brood boxes, supers and nucleus hives, into the Northern Territory (NT).
You must have a health certificate for bees, used beekeeping equipment and apiary products you want to bring into the NT from elsewhere in Australia.
Importing from overseas
If you want to import bees, related products or equipment from overseas go to the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources' Biosecurity Import Conditions website.
