New Zealand Embassy Beijing, China
How the Embassy Can Help
To reiterate, the embassy cannot enter into an individual’s case; conduct an investigation, nor act as a lawyer or mediator in any personal or professional conflict experienced by a New Zealand citizen overseas. The embassy cannot investigate, certify, or vouch for employers. It is up to each individual to evaluate any potential employer before signing any contract.
The embassy can assist New Zealand citizens in a variety of ways. We offer notarial, passport and consular services. We can assist in providing telephone numbers of various Chinese government agencies that you may have to deal with. If you do find yourself in need of a lawyer, we can provide you with a list; however, we are unable to recommend any specific lawyer. We will attempt to answer your questions or complaints.
We encourage New Zealand citizens to register their details. This allows us to contact you should the need arise.
Finally, we cannot be liable for any errors made by New Zealanders who may interpret this advice, which may be different or perhaps even changed by the Chinese authorities at any time.
