(However, if a student visa contains only books, clothes, and blankets, he or she may be eligible according to the circumstances at that time.) In the past, tourist visa would clear the customs clearance with the payment of DEPOSIT to customs authorities without taxes, but from November 17th 2011, the customs clearance deposit system has been abolished, and regardless of new or used products, and the tax will be levied on used products (tax = customs + Vat) Also, if you have a refrigerator, a kimchi refrigerator, or a washing machine in your shipment that comes in with a tourist visa or a study visa, the tax will be levied on either new or used products. Because Korean refrigerator and washer are subjec to the dumping tariff in New Zealand, high tariff is imposed. (Only Korean manufacturers such as Samsung, Daewoo, and LG are subject to the dumping tariff.) At the moment, for those people have a long-term business visa, or more than one year of work visa, or without the permanent residency, have already applied to the Department of Immigration through the Ministry and received can clear the customs clearance only if you receive a deposit without paying a tax, and you can get the deposit money only, but the tax is attributable to the New Zealand government. The deposit must be returned within six months from the date of payment by receiving permanent residence or work visa. Otherwise, this deposit is paid in this case. It is also vested in the Government. Customs can take 7 to 10 days from the date of submission to customs.
Required documents
1
A copy of passport
2
Customs declaration document
3
Visa
Import entry with customers autograph and passport are required for customs clearances, so you should usually arrive at the local port two to three days before the ship arrives. You must contact the New Zealand office to clear customs process starting. The customs clearance is completed within 24 hours after the document is received. Quarantine of the agricultural inspection is conducted, and takes about three to four days to complete.
Quarantine for Agricultural Quality Application (MAF) Quarantine of the agricultural inspection
In New Zealand, the MAF (quarantine inspection) for agricultural products is generally considered for food use only, but there are many other things to do besides food. You should never wrap things like miscellaneous goods, cigarettes, o drinks in your kitchen products. New Zealand is a country that is heavily influenced by Green Peace, so it is difficult to quarantine. Quarantine is also determined after the first inspection on paper and such as seeds, nuts, raw plant and animal bones and leather products, shell, coral shells, mayonnaise, cheese, honey, meat, and meat products processed with eggs are prohibited. Also, if any soil or insect is detected during the examination, it should be sterilized at the location recommended by the quarantine office for 48 hours, so make sure to wrap bamboo mats, vacuum cleaners, fishing rods, tents, footwear and golf clubs are cleaned.
Shipping Schedule
When the ship arrives at the destination port, the container is unloaded and customs clearance is followed.
Just like in any country, New Zealand customs randomly screen containers to see if they match documents. In some cases, customs clearance may be delayed. When the customs clearance is complete, we discuss about the cargo received date and conduct delivery. The transport dates required in New Zealand are slightly different from region to region.
