2. Why can’t we ship honey to your country?

Restricted countries/regions for honey imports

Customs and import regulations vary widely between countries. Some countries have special regulations specific to importing honey and other bee products. While we endeavour to be aware of different countries’ regulations with regard to importing bee products and keep the information current for your convenience, we cannot be responsible for regulatory changes that occur.

When you order products for delivery to an address outside New Zealand, you should acknowledge you have reviewed the contents of your order and acknowledge that it contains acceptable and approved items for import into the country of destination. You should also be solely and fully responsible for any associated risk of any items or package (or part thereof) being detained by customs for whatever reason, and acknowledge and agree that we will not be liable for orders unable to be delivered to their destination due to import regulations.

Therefore, we strongly recommend you to check with your countries customs officials before placing your order.

At this time, we are not permitted or are currently unable to send honey products to the following countries/regions:

West Australia South Africa
Mexico Japan
Cyprus Dominican Republic
Estonia Ethiopia
Egypt Ghana
Jordan Kazakhstan
Kenya Kuwait
Kyrgystan Lebanon
Myanmar Nigeria
Oman Pakistan
Papua New Guinea Qatar
Turkmenistan Tajikistan
Uzbekistan Ukraine
Haiti

Regulated countries or regions

Currently we are aware of the following countries/regions that have special restrictions in regards to honey import.

Germany, Ireland, Spain and United Kingdom only permits 2kg of honey per order. Orders that contain greater than 2kg of honey will be split into multiple packages and shipping charges are adjusted accordingly. This restriction may also apply to other European countries. Please check with your countries Customs Office or other government body before placing any honey orders over 2kg to European countries.
