Your information has power. Do the right thing.


Drugs harm our whānau, our businesses, our communities and our way of life. Your tip could help protect your community from illicit drugs, smuggling and other crimes.

We appreciate all tips, take them seriously, and will act on them, which is why it's vital that the tips we receive are genuine. To report any suspicious activity you can: 

      • call 0800 WE PROTECT(0800 937 768) 24-hour confidential hotline, or
      • complete the online form below.

For privacy and operational reasons, we can't provide you with information on the progress or outcome of our investigations.

Use this form to report unusual or suspicious activity to Customs, in confidence. Answer as many questions as you like and skip any that don’t apply, or where you’d rather not say.
