New Zealand Customs
Customs has over 1,000 staff around New Zealand, covering the main air and sea ports. There are 15 locations open to the public with staff also based in Hamilton, Palmerston North, Queenstown and Timaru. Customs also has officers in Brussels, Bangkok and Sydney. The New Zealand Customs Service (Customs) is the government agency with the job of protecting the community from potential risks arising from international trade and travel, while facilitating the legitimate movement of people and goods across the border. Their Maori name - Te Mana Arai o Aotearoa - translates as the authority that screens and protects New Zealand.
They do this by:
As New Zealand's gatekeepers, they use intelligence and risk assessment to target their physical checks of containers, vessels or travellers. They also conduct investigations and audits, and prosecute offenders.
They work closely with the other border agencies, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry Quarantine Service and the Immigration Service.
