New Zealand Embassy Mexico City


New Zealand associates itself with the European Union statement condemning the 27 April 2010 attack on the convoy of activists, journalists and international observers in Oaxaca State, which was responsible for the deaths of two rights workers. We express our condolences to the families and recognise the actions of the Federal Government to help bring the perpetrators to justice.

During the past financial year 08/09, the New Zealand Embassy in Mexico City funded eight projects in Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala through the Head of Mission Fund (HOMF).

The New Zealand Embassy manages the HOMF, which is aimed at supporting small-scale development projects. Recipients are generally non-government organisations and community groups engaged in development activities.


The NZIDRS programme provides an opportunity for international students to undertake doctoral study in New Zealand in a wide range of disciplines.


From 30 November 2009, Venezuelan nationals will no longer require transit visas to transit New Zealand en route to other destinations.
