What items are prohibited from being imported into New Zealand?

There are several items that are prohibited from being imported into New Zealand due to the country’s strict biosecurity regulations. These items include:

  • Any food, regardless of whether it is cooked, uncooked, fresh, preserved, packaged, or dried
  • Plants or plant products
  • Other biosecurity risk items such as animal medicines, biological cultures, and soil or water
  • Animals or animal products, including meat, fish, honey, and dairy products
  • Items that have been used for outdoor or farming activities

It’s important to note that prohibited items will be disposed of upon arrival in New Zealand, so it’s best to leave these items behind when packing for your move.

Some of our Customer Reviews

The packers were careful, quick and courteous. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again! Efficient, polite, punctual: could not ask for more.

Hertfordshire, UK to Virginia, USA - March 2023

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.
