I am ordering from overseas. What should I know about Customs and import regulations?
Customs and import regulations vary from country to country. It is important for you to understand them. Some of the products we sell on this website may be prohibited for importation into certain countries. If we are aware of any particular import restrictions, we will make note of this on the product detail page. Please understand that it is not possible for us to be aware of all of the regulations specific to any given country.
It's entirely your responsibility to ensure that any goods which you order are not prohibited or restricted within your delivery country. VitaHealth will not accept any liability for the refund/replacement of any goods or any costs relating to or arising from, the importation or confiscation of any goods by your countries Customs Office or other government bodies. Likewise, any import duty or tax payable on your order is not our responsibility and is beyond our control. If an order is returned to us by your countries import authorities in resalable condition, we'll refund you the value of the order less any postage costs incurred to us. We cannot provide a refund until we've received the products back. We don't provide refunds on parcels that are detained or confiscated at your countries customs due to containing items which are prohibited.
All overseas parcels must include a consignment note representing the full and correct value of the contents in the parcel. Parcel sent with courier mail must also contain a true copy of the order invoice.
We accept no liability for any goods lost in transit outside of New Zealand but will do our utmost by investigating any lost parcels.
We've been sending goods all over the world for many years and have had very few problems which have given our customers a great level of confidence and accessibility to great products generally not available in other countries
We recommend you contact your local Customs Office for further information on import regulations in your country.

What happens if my parcel doesn't arrive?

International orders: Airmail delivery timeframes are 5 – 15 working days after dispatch. If you have not received your parcel in this time, please notify us via email and we can then launch an investigation with NZ Post for you. The investigation can only be launched once 3 weeks have passed since dispatch. Once an investigation is underway, NZ Post will work with your country’s postal service and attempt to locate your missing parcel. If for some reason they are unable to locate your parcel they will send a letter of “declaration of non-receipt” to the same address. This is to validate the delivery address and to also confirm in writing that you have not received your parcel. Please note: Compensation for your missing parcel in the form of a resend or a refund can only be received once NZ Post receives your signed declaration of non-receipt. We will work closely with you and the postal services until the investigation is complete.
