The below information is for sending internationally. 

Customs

  • All parcels sent internationally require a Customs declaration. The information contained within the declaration may be electronically transmitted to the destination postal administration and national government agencies (such as Customs) in advance of arrival for fiscal, risk, security and border clearance purposes, in line with national and international legislation. Learn more about Electronic Advance Data (EAD).  
  • Use one of the NZ Post electronic lodgement tools (such as eShip, Business Self Service or APIs) to create the shipping labels to complete the Customs documentation; or use a green Customs declaration form (CN 22/ OS008A) for Economy, Economy Bulk services and a red business consignment note (OS007) for Economy Plus service. Note that some services only accepts labels created via NZ Post electronic lodgement tools. 

Export invoices and export entries 

  • A copy of the commercial invoice or an Export Invoice (NCPI025) (PDF - 49KB), if your parcel is being sent as part of a commercial transaction. 
  • A completed Export Entry (for items valued over NZ$1,000). NZ Post can complete this on your behalf for an additional cost. 

Attaching documents to parcels 

If you have documentation, such as shipping labels (including electronic labels and manual consignment notes, invoices, or other certificates) that are not adhesive, you will need to put them into a clear plastic pouch and attach it securely to your parcel. Please ensure the shipping label is facing out. You can get clear pouches at NZ Post retail outlets or at our online shop

The standard terms and conditions of the products and services offered by New Zealand Post Limited, including information on the extent of our liability, are set out in the Public Contract and the Postal Users' Guide. They are also available for reference at PostShop stores and selected New Zealand Post retail outlets. 

Delivery Targets 

For the purposes of delivery targets, the day in which the item is accepted by us is day zero. If you post an item, or hand it over the counter in a New Zealand Post retail outlet after that day’s final clearance, or on Saturday or Sunday, day zero will be the next working day. 

You can expect that items will usually arrive at their destination within the delivery target specified. Because New Zealand Post does not directly control all parts of the delivery chain, we cannot guarantee that your item will always reach its destination within the delivery target. Delivery to areas outside major cities, or where your item is dutiable or held in Customs, may take longer. For information on our delivery targets for international destinations, view our guide to World Zones.

Required postage 

The required postage is the value of postage required for New Zealand Post to carry the item. Actual price paid may vary instore. The required postage and specifications are subject to change. 

Cover for loss or damage, prohibited & restricted items 

Before sending mail items, make sure your item is safe to send and will be covered if it goes missing or is damaged. Make sure you read about cover for loss or damage and prohibited & restricted items.
