Finding a transitional facility
Goods, sea containers and air containers arriving in New Zealand must first go to a transitional facility approved by MPI. Find out if you need a transitional facility, where they are located, and what you need to do to move goods between facilities.
How to find a transitional facility
MPI has a list of approved transitional facilities. Most facilities are approved only for certain commodities, and only a few can deal with all types of products.
Transferring your goods to another transitional facility
If you move biosecurity-risk goods between facilities, including to a containment facility, you need to submit a transfer form to MPI.
Find a treatment supplier
If your goods require treatment, you need to arrange to have this done by an MPI-approved treatment supplier.

Find an approved pest identifier
If pests are found in your goods, you may need to arrange to have them identified by an MPI-approved pest identifier, normally at your cost. Post-entry quarantine samples must be sent to MPI's Plant Health and Environment Laboratory (Tamaki) for pest identification.
