Customs for parcel shipping to Norfolk Island

They have the right to assess a duty or fee on your goods if they are valued at over a certain threshold (typically one hundred dollars, but that can vary based on what it is you are shipping). The Customs officials will also make sure your contents are in compliance with the rules and regulations put forth by their bylaws and procedures such as what is prohibited from entering the island such as radio active materials as an example. If you have questions about the Customs process there, you can either contact them directly or talk to your shipping company for more details as they pertain to your specific items.
