I am migrating to Australia, and want to find out whether I can carry my Baofeng UV82 HX / HP model there. The model has CE, FCC, ROHS compliance, and a black 'Tick' mark next to these three. If the same model is sold in Australia, I believe I can carry it too?

I have heard however that in order to speed up the procedure through customs some suppliers put a sticker over the battery saying it's a Li-Ion instead of Li-Po. $\endgroup$

I see from a Google search of "Baofeng UV82 Australia" that the UV82 is sold there. It's possible that there is a different firmware version for Australia, perhaps to restrict the power level or to keep users out of certain frequencies, but that seems unlikely to me. Personally I would bring it; there's a small chance that it might be confiscated by Customs, but surely you could afford to buy another if that were to happen.

When Migrating from one country to another, regardless of countries, it is a good idea to contact customs in both countries to ensure that you declare your equipment, and get information about the specifics of import/export details, forms, and procedures.

You don't want any surprises on the day itself.
