    Importing Optics

    Hi there, first time poster here.

    i've been eyeing up a Vortex scope on the closeout deal on eurooptic.com. Some really good deals to be had even given the conversion rate + shipping.

    Do i need a procurement permit for optics these days? Have never done this, its just such a stark difference to the shops ($7-800)

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi there,
    Welcome to the forum.
    Yes you will need a NZ Police import permit for a scope now. Just fill in the linked form and send it to the address below.
    Currently they are taking about 1.5~2 weeks for processing.



    Note: Also expect to get stung for GST on anything over NZ$400, including postage.
    And the back log at the international mail centre is growing, so clearance is taking anywhre up to 2~3 months at the moment.
    YOu know who to thank for that.
