Westduin Cemetery, The Hague, The Netherlands, 25 April 2013


The New Zealand Embassy in The Hague will host an Anzac Day remembrance service on Thursday 25 April 2013. 


This year Queen's Day (Koninginnedag) on 30th April will also mark the Queen's abdication and the investiture of her son as King Willem-Alexander.  Last year Queen's Day attracted 700,000 visitors to Amsterdam and Dutch authorities are expecting even greater numbers this year, including many VIPs which will necessitate strict security arrangements.   Dutch authorities recommend that, as much as possible, tourists and Dutch residents stay away from central Amsterdam and consider celebrating Queen's Day in other Dutch cities.


New Zealand's Douglas Wright Dance Company will be performing Rapt for two nights in The Hague. 

Performances will be on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 April 2013 in the Lucent Dance Theatre starting at 20.15 each night.


The New Zealand Embassy in The Hague will be undergoing maintenance works on 11 and 12 February 2013 which will make access to the embassy difficult at times.


The New Zealand Embassy in The Hague will close for 2012 at 5pm on 21 December and will re-open at 9am on Thursday 3 January 2013.


The visa section has closed and no visa applications should be sent to The Hague.  All applications which were previously lodged in The Hague should now be sent to Immigration New Zealand in London at the address below.  Applications sent to The Hague will be returned to the sender.
