    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    It's less than $400 if there's duty on the item/s. Firearms and accessories don't have any duty.

    If duty (on the item) + GST (on the item, shipping and duty) is less than $60, then you don't have to pay.

    NZ customs frequently miss charging on combined value NZ$400 plus. Anything that comes via DHL seems to get picked up but for some reason many of my Fedex packages over $NZ400 seem to slip through.
    Its very hit/miss so don't depend on it.
