There's a push for New Zealand to follow Australia's lead, and cut the duty free cigarette allowance.
Associate Health Minister Tariana Turia wants to cut the allowance from 200 to 50.
She says people are bringing them in, without being taxed, and often on-selling them.
"I think that if we're serious about a 2025 cut off, we have to address all the ways in which our cigarettes are being accessed by smokers."
She says it's a relatively straightforward process.
"The good thing about it is we don't have to legislate to do this, we can do it through regulation."
Ms Turia says she's working with the Ministry of Health to see what can be done.
