Amber Heard has been charged for allegedly smuggling her dogs into Australia.

The 29-year-old beauty has been summoned to appear in court in Queensland in September after she, along with husband Johnny Depp, allegedly illegally smuggled their two Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, into the country on a private plane.

Amber has been charged with two counts of illegal importation and one count of producing a false document after breaking the country's quarantine laws. She now could face a fine of $200,000 or up to 10 years in prison.

At the time of the incident, the star - who tied the knot with Johnny earlier this year - was told she had to have the dogs removed from the country within 50 hours or they would be killed.

She was given a final warning by Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce to send the pooches back to the US, which the couple did arrange.

And at the time, the actress dismissed the case, insisting it was just politicians trying ''to go for their 15 minutes [of fame].''

She said: ''I have a feeling we're going to avoid the land Down Under from now on ... I guess everyone tries to go for their 15 minutes, including some government officials.''
