Yes! Currently it is quite simple to bring a hunting firearm with you into NZ. If you are bringing a firearm make sure you have the correct paper work and $25 NZD cash. See the NZ Police website for details. You will need to complete the visitors firearms licence form before you arrive.
We suggest bringing 40 rounds of ammunition and recommend a 200yard/meter zero. A .243 would be considered a minimum calibre for our game animals. A .270, 7mm rem Mag or other flat shooting calibre is an excellent choice.
You will need to check with any countries you may be transferring through on what their current laws are. Most hunters from North America and Australia bring their own rifles to hunt with us while a number of European hunters use our rifles as transfers through Asian countries can be difficult.
