Send a parcel to New Zealand from only £21.60


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.

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, check with the New Zealand Post’s addressing guide, or alternatively you can consult the Universal Postal Union’s overview.

What items can I send?

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.
