Export payments and refunds
When you export anything, you must pay an export entry transaction fee or an outward cargo transaction fee.
Export entry transaction fees
- NZ$12.01 (including GST) – items you’re exporting under the Secure Exports Scheme (SES)
- NZ$17.94 (including GST) – items you’re not exporting under an SES.
Outward cargo transaction fees
- NZ$11.51 (including GST) – every ECI for items you’re exporting by air
- NZ$28.83 (including GST) – every ECI for items you’re exporting by sea.
If you re-import items for which you claimed a duty/GST refund or drawback, you must pay the usual duty and other applicable charges.
