Passports for children born overseas
Before a child born outside New Zealand to one or more New Zealand parents can get a New Zealand passport, the child must be registered as a New Zealand Citizen by Descent.
It is possible to apply for New Zealand Citizenship by Descent and a New Zealand passport simultaneously. In this case, the applications should be posted together to the Citizenship Office.
For information on registering your child as a New Zealand Citizen by Descent, please visit the Citizenship Office.
Please visit the Passports Office website for information on applying for a New Zealand passport, including the applicable fees. Application forms can be downloaded from the website.
If you have any questions about passports, please email the Department of Internal Affairs, or contact their London office:
