However, please be aware Australia Post have advised customers to expect delivery delays due to a high volume of parcels in their network as a consequence of the Coronavirus.

STARTRACK EXPRESS delivery timetable for parcels (guide only)

  • All states 1-4 business days.



Please note Australia Post have advised that DELIVERIES TO NEW ZEALAND HAVE BEEN DELAYED as a consequence of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Our AusPost Express Airmail deliveries are prioritised over regular post but due to the high volume of parcels in the network and the limited flights to airfreight unfortunately your order might take slightly longer than usual to reach you. We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Import Duties: NZ customs will not collect GST, duty or charge an Import Entry Transaction Fee (IETF) on products valued at $1,000 NZ or less.

If your purchase is valued over $1000 NZ, you'll have to pay GST plus the IETF and MPI biosecurity levy when the goods arrive in NZ. Please find further information via this link.


Shipping cost to Japan and Taiwan will be calculated at checkout.  (* We will also ship elsewhere in Asia. Please email info@needessentials.com to arrange.)

*Please be aware orders may be subject to duties or customs charges once the parcel reaches the destination country. Any customs or import duties and associated fees must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. needessentials has no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. needessentials cannot be held responsible for any additional charges on your order and we will not accept a return of the order if a customer refuses to pay these charges.
