New Zealand Embassy Brasilia, Brazil
The New Zealand Embassy occasionally receives lost or stolen property belonging to New Zealanders that has been found by members of the public. If there is something in a bag or wallet that provides a New Zealand connection, such as a driver's license, it may be worth checking with the New Zealand Embassy to see if anything has been handed in.
The Embassy makes every effort to contact the owners of any items it receives and will also keep your name and contact details on file in case your property is handed in at a later date. It is not unheard of for items to be forwarded to the New Zealand Embassy months after they were lost or stolen.
After holding the items for three months and not being able to contact the owner, the Embassy may return items like drivers licenses, and firearms licenses, to the issuer or forward the property to the Consular Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Wellington, who may make further inquiries.
