About New Zealand

New Zealand (Maori Aotearoa) is an island country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It consists of two main islands, North Island and South Island, with some smaller islands offshore. The country is full of stunning and diverse natural beauty, from jagged mountains, to rolling pastures, raging rivers, scenic beaches and active volcanic zones.

New Zealand is a hugely popular destination among expats, thanks to its favourable climate, staggeringly beautiful scenery, laid-back lifestyle and more. English and Maori are the official languages of New Zealand, with English being spoken by the majority of the locals. As such, English speaking expats won’t be faced with language barriers.

New Zealand Customs Information

When shipping goods to New Zealand, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects or a gift to a loved one; if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back.

Generally, Uni Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because Uni Baggage has no control over any decisions made, we do advise doing your own research into New Zealand customs regulations before booking your shipment to New Zealand. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in New Zealand.

Please note that shipments to New Zealand with a declared value under £120/$170 USD it will typically clear customs in 1-2 days. However, shipments with a declared value over this threshold will require self-clearance and additional fees may apply.

We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable and suitable for transit.

If you are sending fragile or delicate items, we recommend using internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers.
