Packaging a parcel for delivery to New Zealand?
To ensure that your parcel arrives safely in New Zealand, always make sure you package your parcel safely and securely. If you’re unsure about the best way to do this, take a look at our packaging guide.
When addressing your parcel, be aware that New Zealand uses a unique addressing system which requires you to differentiate between street, rural locality and PO Box. Check you’re doing this correctly to ensure your mail reaches its destination. New Zealand Post provides a handy addressing guide if you need assistance.
Once you have filled out the address, we will send you a print-at-home label. Make sure your address label is firmly stuck onto the outside of the box and always tuck a secondary address label inside the box, just in case your label becomes loose during the shipping process.
Shipping to New Zealand: What items can I send?
It is your responsibility as a sender to check whether an item is prohibited or restricted. Before you send your parcel, it’s always best to refer to the prohibited and restricted items list. Some of the high-profile items include:
- Flammable liquids and solids;
- Valuables, including bank cards, passports and collectables;
- Furs and skins (untreated);
- Indecent goods.
If you’re unsure whether your item is contraband, you can submit a query to New Zealand Post’s National Contact Centre.
New Zealand’s customs restrictions
You will need to complete a customs form when sending goods internationally. You will also be required to pay duties and taxes on any parcels sent to New Zealand.
It’s always best to check the latest customs advice on the web before sending goods to New Zealand. Duty rates, taxes and customs laws are constantly changing, so it’s best to be aware of the regulations and charges you may face before you ship.
Things to remember
Please provide both your contact number as well as the recipient’s, to ensure you can both be contacted throughout the shipment process.
