This form or the information on this form must be provided not less than 48 hours before the estimated time of arrival (ETA) of the craft in New Zealand. Where it is not possible to give such notice electronically (e.g. by email or fax), the notice may be given by some other means (e.g. by telephone). The New Zealand Customs Service Freephone contact number is 0800 428 786, outside New Zealand +64 9 927 8036.
To avoid delays in processing, in addition to providing this Advance Notice of Arrival (Form NZCS 340), you should contact Maritime Radio on VHF channel 16, 2182khz, 4125khz, 6215khz or 8291khz, 12 hours prior to arriving at your nominated Customs port to update or confirm your ETA. Please ensure that Customs continues to be updated via Maritime Radio or directly to Customs at the port of arrival. You should also note that officers engaged in the clearance of arriving craft will discontinue the process if they encounter crew behaviour that they deem inappropriate or a compromise to safety. Delays in the completion of clearance formalities will inevitably result.
PART D: Commercial Cargo (please record on a separate sheet and attach if additional space is required)
List all goods carried in or on the craft from a point outside New Zealand, whether in the course of international trade or for sale or supply in those goods, but excludes the personal effects of crew and passengers and stores for craft.
