Insulin, Traveling

Question from Ireland:

We are traveling to Australia for a year in April. Is it okay to ship his supply over as he is only allowed a limited supply to bring with him? What is the best way to ship it over? Is there anyway he could avail of insulin over there? He takes Actrapid. How much would it cost??


From: DTeam Staff

All insulins are available in Australia. All your other supplies would also be readily available as well especially in any of the large or medium sized Australian cities. You may want to bring a copy of your own physician’s written prescriptions to share with the pharmacists in Australia.
