If you are considering importing a vehicle to New Zealand, we recommend you use an Entry Certifier. The process can be lengthy and you will need to collect the correct supporting information for your application. Entry certifiers assess whether or not vehicles meet the applicable standards and can be registered for use on New Zealand roads.
However, if you want to import the vehicle independently we recommend that you talk with an entry certifier early in the process to get their advice on your vehicle’s suitability. If your vehicle doesn't meet the standards on arrival, it may be too late to do anything about it. Where can you find an entry certifier?
The requirements your vehicle must meet depend on its vehicle class. Find out the class, and then the requirements here.
You need to provide evidence that your vehicle meets New Zealand requirements. Some evidence requirements differ depending on your vehicle's origin.
