Goods mailed into New Zealand may be subject to import duty. Import duties are calculated on the Customs value of the goods in New Zealand dollars.
The goods may also be subject to Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 15%, based on the Customs value of the goods, and including the duty (if any) and postal/courier charges.
Goods liable for duty and GST of NZ$60 or more cannot be released until the charges are paid.
There will also be an import entry transaction fee (IETF) and MPI biosecurity system entry levy.
If your goods are valued at over NZ$1,000, you will need a client code.
