New Zealand Embassy Paris, France

Applying for a visa to New Zealand

The receiving office for New Zealand visa applications has changed. Since 2012, visa applications can no longer be lodged with the New Zealand Embassy in Paris and instead must be sent to the New Zealand Visa Application Centre (VAC) in London.

The VAC will charge a visa facilitation fee per application. This fee should be submitted with each application in addition to the relevant visa application fee. For payment methods, please refer to the VAC website. Information regarding courier options for the return of passports and original documentation is also on this website.

All applications must be lodged by mail (or in person) to:

NZ Visa Application Centre London

TT Visa Services Ltd
Burwood House
14-16 Caxton Street

Hours: 9am to 4pm
Phone: +44 203 582 7499

Beware: there are rogue websites in existence demanding online payment which have very similar URLs to the official website. To make sure you are going to the correct website, only use the links on this page. Note that the official site does not request payment online.

Applications are only required from people who need a visa (e.g. student, work, transit, resident, long stay visitor) to travel to New Zealand. Short-stay visitors from visa waiver countries, including France, can continue to travel to New Zealand visa free under certain conditions.
