    Probably need to get an import permit from NZPolice, send it nzcustoms, then arrange courier to pick up.

    patience @lmlalong

    current waiting time for items to get thru the customs blockade seems to be about 2-3 months.

    do yourself a favor and apply for an import permit so long, at least that way you will be ready to send it customs when you receive the letter advising you that you need a permit.

    also be prepared to go collect your item or get a mate to collect it, as NZ Post no longer transport scary firearms parts or anything related to firearms..,

    Be prepared to Wait ??? . Just how long is anyone's guess? . I have been waiting since 17/07 and the word from NZpost was that Customs are at the minimum One month behind and you will probably need a permit .
