Hi guys,

 

Been ages since I have used NZPost to send overseas and want to make sure I'm filling their form correctly as it's slightly different to the DHL ones. Don't want the shipment to get rejected!

 

I'm sending two sample products to a potential client's storage warehouse in the states. As I understand when using the International Express option, I am required to fill in the white consignment form + the export form.

 

I have filled in the basic address information, ticked Merchandise/Sample under the Customs declaration and added in the value, description and weight of the items.
Am I required to enter the tarrif code + Country of Origin for just samples?

 

Unlike the DHL forms, there is also no field for Importer or Record and Ultimate Consignee, but the NZPost form has a field for VAT/GST no. instead. Am I right to think I should put the EIN (US tax code) in that field instead? Clients mentioned their storage warehouse will not accept the parcel if their EIN is not used.

 

A few more fields I don't recall filling out in the past and not sure if I can leave them blank:
Senders account number - left blank
Sender reference - left blank
Customs client code - left blank
Reason for export: Product sample

 

Thanks in advance

Best bet would be to talk to either NZ Customs or NZ Post and get them to step you through the form.

 

NZ Post (or equivalent outlet) counter staff should have enough experience with the forms to step you through.

Hmm yeah, in the past they counter staff were very helpful.

 

Have since moved and the one close to me have the laziest, most unhelpful staff. Literally just told me to do my research then come back. Guess will have to call customs when I have some time.
