Australian and New Zealand Markets

Both Australia and New Zealand have economies which are both stable and have the opportunity to grow exponentially. With  rm ties to the British culture, these countries offer an excellent opportunity for British online retailers to export to.

Australian Rules 



Australia keeps tight control over what can be imported into the country and there are a number of prohibited and restricted imports that you cannot send, such as  rearms. The Australian customs services regularly X-ray packages to ensure they don’t contain prohibited items.

New Zealand Rules


The New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment keeps tight control on imports and in particular those that might present a biosecurity risk. Some items may have to go through the process of cleaning or treatment to avoid unwanted pests or diseases being introduced into the country.
