What's My Duty?

Welcome to What's My Duty?, the easy way to estimate how much duty and/or GST you may need to pay to Customs if you’re buying goods from overseas.

If the amount to be paid to Customs is under $60, this will be waived, but if it’s $60 or more, you’ll have to pay any duty and GST plus an Import Entry Transaction Fee and MPI levy. Please note that tobacco and alcohol products are excluded from this waiver. Duty and GST are payable on these two regardless of the amount. You can find out more about these charges on the Customs website.

The value of purchases will be converted to NZ$ using the Customs rates of exchange, which may differ slightly from daily bank rates.
