09.36am 28 October 2022 | News

Importers, exporters and their agents are reminded that a wide range of goods of any origin will be prohibited from export to the Russian Federation, or from import to New Zealand if their country of origin was the Russian Federation from 4 November 2022.

Further, many more classifications of goods have been added to the export prohibition in place for goods going to Belarus or the Russian Federation. There is no de minimis for any of these prohibitions or personal effects exemption. The 35 percent tariff  on imports will continue, and remains payable even if goods seized.

Importers, exporters and their agents are recommended to check the Russia Sanctions page on the MFAT website for further information, including FAQs, and to check the Russia Sanctions Register on this page (click on the Trade Measures tab) to view the wide range of HS Tariff classifications affected.
