Delays in treating goods posing biosecurity risk
We ask travellers and anyone receiving goods in overseas mail to be aware of treatment delays in Auckland.
The approved treatment provider for goods detained at the International Mail Centre or from arriving travellers at Auckland Airport will be unable to offer service from November 2022 to January 2023.
The provider will hold items that are eligible for treatment securely and carry out the required treatment once operations resume in January.
Perishable items are not able to be held during this period.
Passengers and importers can avoid processing delays by ensuring goods are compliant with New Zealand’s biosecurity requirements.
