Accompanying your imports

On occasion you may wish to bring in commercial goods as accompanied luggage on a flight into a New Zealand airport.

These goods will still be classed as imported goods, and will be treated  the same as goods brought in by other means. You will need to complete an import entry clearance – either before or after you land in New Zealand. Your goods will also be subject to duty, goods and services tax (GST), and any other applicable fees and charges.
