Importing a motor vehicle (Factsheet 44)

Published: | Category: Importing vehicles , Factsheets | Audience: Importers

This factsheet should be read in conjunction with Factsheet 44a and Factsheet 44b. New Zealand allows the import of 'used' vehicles, provided the vehicle meets applicable standards, safety and emissions requirements. There must also be acceptable proof of ownership and standards compliance. These things are checked in the process known as entry certification. Entry certifiers are appointed by the NZ Transport Agency to carry out this task.
