Customs works alongside four other agencies at the border – the Ministry for Primary Industries, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (Immigration New Zealand), and the Ministry of Transport.
Border Sector agencies work together to provide an integrated and responsive border management system that facilitates trade and travel while managing risk.
As the border sector grows more complex and volumes of trade and travellers increase, inter-agency collaboration aims for more control, easier flows, and greater efficiency.
