Customs in New Zealand

Collection & Delivery

Packages being collected and delivered

Courier Collection

If you book your shipment in good time, we can pick-up your parcel on the same day in many locations in New Zealand and the UK. Large and heavy parcels require an advance booking however, and you may be required to help your courier load your shipment.

If you’re not available for a collection, you can often use a drop-off point. These are local businesses that you can drop your package off at when it’s convenient for you. It’s cheaper than shipping directly too, saving you more money.

Sending Gifts to New Zealand

When sending gifts to New Zealand, if the gift you’re sending is worth less than NZ$400, duties and taxes will not be applied. If the gift is worth more, then you will only be taxed on the amount that is above NZ$400.

For example, if you were sending a present worth NZ$1,000 to Auckland from the UK, when your package arrived at New Zealand customs you would only be charged duties and taxes on NZ$600 of its value.

Sending Luggage or
Excess Baggage to New Zealand

If you are moving or returning to New Zealand after being out of the country for 21 months or more (or are moving for the first time), your goods may be eligible for exemptions to duties and customs. If this is the case, you can import without having to pay customs fees or tax as long as you meet certain criteria.

Apart from the requirement for being out of the country for 21 months before importing, you will also need to fulfil the following criteria:

  • When the effects arrive, you live in New Zealand and you can present documentation authorising your residence – such as your passport.
  • The goods you’re importing must be used – brand new items don’t qualify for concessions.
  • The goods are for your personal use, and you don’t plan to sell, gift to or exchange goods with anyone else.

If you’re returning home from a holiday or short trip, this exemption doesn’t apply, and you’ll likely have to pay duties and taxes on your items.

Important points of note:

  1. Personal effects are only considered as such when they are goods that are used by an individual, such as clothing.
  2. Goods that are used by multiple people are considered household effects, and are treated as completely separate items during the customs clearance process.
  3. In order for your personal effects to pass through customs without any problems, you may need to complete additional documentation.

Packaging your Parcel

When you send a package to New Zealand, it’s crossing half the world to arrive in the hands of your recipient. It’s important to properly package your goods for the journey, and taking these simple steps can save many headaches down the line.


When shipping goods around the world, it’s best to use a new box. Older boxes can be concealing weaknesses that could end up causing them to burst or be crushed. Using a strong, double corrugated cardboard box can make all the difference.

Safely packaging a parcel for international shipping


Make sure to wrap your goods individually in a material like bubble wrap before placing them in your box. Then surround them in packaging material like Styrofoam, making sure that they do not touch any part of the box walls and don’t move when the box is shaken.


By using strong packing tape you can further reinforce your box. Tape it three times around your box in a Union Flag pattern, covering the corners and the seams. Remove all old labelling that may be on your box, and place your new label to be clearly visible.
