Due to the fluctuations of the exchange rate, orders with value very close to the tax-free limit may be assessed Duties and Taxes (D&T) as the currency exchange rate may vary from the order date to the customs clearance date.
Please check with your local customs office in New Zealand to see if you can import the items, and if any additional licenses or permits are needed.
Import tax and duties will be imposed on customers with order values exceeding NZD $1,000.
