International Shipping from / to Norfolk Island
Shipping to Norfolk Island
Norfolk Island is technically an external territory of Australia. That being said, it does get a lot of its laws and regulations through the Australian government, but it does govern itself in many ways. You can see this overlapping effect in its Customs department. The Customs officials are technically running the show based the Island's own governing practices, but they do adhere to Australia's guidelines for what is allowed in through their Customs offices such as prohibited and restricted items. It is because of their overlap that it is best to check with both the Norfolk Island's and Australia's web sites for information on what is allowed to be shipped there and what ever laws may be in place for shipping certain items. Your shipping company will be able to help you if you have any questions as to what applies to your particular shipment.
