Ham Hop (Mrs Hop Poon Gooey) was issued with exemption certificate no. 11/30 on 8 June 1911 by the Acting Collector of Customs for Victoria. The exemption was valid for three months.
This was the first extension of Ham Hop's original six month exemption, which had been granted in November 1910. The Minister approved the extension because at the time of her application, she was pregnant and soon to give birth. Her daughter Queenie was born on 5 June 1911.
