B4.3.1  Duty Free allowance

Customs are generally more formal than in neighbouring Australia.

Total value of Duty Free goods can't exceed NZ$700

Duty Free quantities:
Alcohol;
 3 x 1.125l bottles of spirits
  - must declare 2 bottles
 4.5l of beer and/or wine
  - equivalent to 6 x 750ml bottles of wine or 1 doz cans of beer
Cigarettes;
 1 carton

or ask at the duty free shop at the airport.  They are usually quite
up to date with the duty free allowances of each country.

B4.3.2  Allowances for people relocating to NZ

You will be given an allowance of value of goods to be brought into NZ.  
So within the first 5 years ( I think) you can bring in quite a lot as
long as you are within the allowance without being taxed (customs duty) 
provided they are personal belongings for your use here.

Check the details with the NZ Embassy/Consulate in your country or
write to the NZ Customs.  You need to find out the allowance and ensure
you know the exact conditions pertaining to your circumstance.
