That's the theory. I know quite a few who have imported Asian sourced marine equipment here privately, with no issues. It's technically illegal to use it here, but no one checks.

They will now! New regs came in October last year and relates to "radio transmitting apparatus" only so will effect importation of marine VHF HF etc. Customs now treat it all like they do laser pointers. No import licence they bin it.

If they catch it, The baofengs aren't on trademe as much but they are still being imported by the like's of wish.com and aliexpress. General feeling is without a massive boost in the customs force at Auckland Mail Center it wont impact anything other than the odd unlucky person
