Customs and freight

May 31 2013

Because the New Zealand economy is heavily dependent upon the export of agricultural products, there are strict bio-security rules governing the importation of plants and animals. Importing equipment (including camera equipment), props or vehicles into New Zealand may also attract significant import duties. Accordingly it is essential to arrange in advance for either a Temporary Import Entry (T.I.E.) or Carnet for any major items being brought into the country on a temporary basis to avoid unnecessary expense or delays in clearing customs.
