Send a parcel to New Zealand from only £19.16


New Zealand

One of the most picturesque and photogenic places in the world; with its vast mountain ranges and sweeping coastlines, it’s no wonder that New Zealand’s dramatic scenery is probably most famously known for its starring role as Middle Earth.

Known as the Land of the Long White Cloud, New Zealand is made up of the North and South Islands and, with a population of just over 4 million, it’s gloriously uncrowded.

New Zealand Customs Information

When you send a parcel to New Zealand, your package will require correct customs information and may be subject to additional charges. However, If you’re sending a gift to an individual in New Zealand and it costs less than £56/NZ$110, then you won’t have to pay any additional duties. DPD will send all forms you need for your parcel to pass through New Zealand Customs when you book with us. All you need to do is fill out the forms and let us do the rest.

A Goods and Service Tax of 15% applies to all deliveries to New Zealand that are over the value of NZ$1000.

Some services may ask for a commodity code. This is sometimes called a HS or Tariff code and is used to see your parcel’s item(s) so border officials can check they're safe and calculate any duties owed. You can find a commodity code for your parcel in the booking process.

How should I address my parcel for delivery to New Zealand?

It may come as something of a surprise to know that New Zealand’s postal system is somewhat unique compared to the rest of the world, especially the UK. Basically there are three types of address in New Zealand: urban, rural, and PO box. These address types are not to be combined. To ensure your parcel is addressed correctly, see this detailed guide.

What items can I send to New Zealand?

The general rule with New Zealand is that you can send anything that would be acceptable to mail here in the UK. For a general overview of those restrictions, you can visit our prohibited items list.

However, one thing that’s worth noting is that the Kiwis have a couple of odd rules regarding things like:

  • Iron and steel.
  • Coal and fossil fuels.

Certain variants of these items are strictly prohibited, while others are permitted in small quantities. Check with New Zealand’s customs office for a full breakdown of your options.
