Long story short.
Wife flew back to NZ via Sydney over the weekend. One bag got held back and missed the original flight. Was sent the next day.
Received bag today. Opened by Oz customs in Sydney and two Airsoft guns confiscated.
I am aware that Airsoft guns are prohibited in Oz.
However as the bag was in transit and should've been checked all the way to WLG why would Oz customs do this? I would've expected to have NZ customs deal with the bag where the items are not prohibited.
The letter included says we can object and apply to have the items returned.
Anyone experienced this before?
Looking for constructive feedback as I did do my research before hand and believed the Airsoft guns were legal to bring into the country.
