The thing has finally arrived in Auckland, but because it's over NZ$1,000 in value, I need to have a Client Code with Customs. This will take a day or two, apparently. I may still *just* be able to get my camera before I go overseas on Thursday night.
But....if you think you MIGHT, EVER import any item yourself (not Mobicity or Expansys doing it for you) over NZ$1,000 you'd be well advised to get a Customs Client Code first. It will save you several days and remove one more annoying speed bump on the way to NEW TOYS!!! :-)
You can get the application here in PDF form. http://www.customs.govt.nz/news/resources/forms/Documents/NZCS%20224.pdf
You can fill it in, sign it and scan it for emailing back to them at
You need to also attach a scanned copy of your drivers license or biography page (name, DOB, etc) of your passport.
