Are you importing a vehicle, boat or aircraft from the United States into New Zealand?

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has announced strict new treatment requirements for imports from the United States. This follows several infestations of brown marmorated stink bugs which were found on vehicles and parts from the region.

All US imports of new or used cars, machinery, trucks, parts and aircraft or boats (arriving as cargo) must now be treated before being shipped to New Zealand. Please see the MPI notification for more information or contact us if you have any questions.

Biosecurity agencies across the globe regularly inspect imported vehicles and machinery which can provide a haven for exotic insects and animals. Such cargo is often treated by fumigation to prevent the spread of harmful pests and diseases, with an aim to protect the local environment.
