Receiving mail & parcels
Some items are prohibited and cannot be imported into New Zealand, and some require approval to import.
If you need a short term mailing address of up to three months, use our Counter delivery service located at your local PostShop and some PostCentre outlets.
If you live in rural New Zealand, Rural Post can deliver your mail and CourierPost items as well as provide a pick up service for outgoing mail and CourierPost items, free of charge.
Poste Restante is an inexpensive service for receiving letters and parcels while you’re visiting New Zealand from overseas.
