As some of you may have already heard, Japan Post does not offer sea mail service to New Zealand anymore. This went into effect in April, 2019. Japan Post does offer surface mail service to the rest of the world with some exception. The reason why Japan Post does not accept surface mail to New Zealand is because New Zealand Post does not accept sea mails from overseas.
As you can see, it is the New Zealand Post which would not accept international sea mail. Therefore, there is no change if you are shipping your personal belongings by sea using the service of an international moving company or shipping some commercial goods via freight shipping company like us. In other words, goods can be shipped as cargo. Having said that sea shipping to New Zealand from Japan is available, note that customs clearance is required both on the Japan and the New Zealand unlike when shipping via post. To clear your shipment through customs, you need to prepare a packing list describing he contents for all the boxes.
We offer shipping services by sea to New Zealand both by sea and air. For more details, please visit our website.
