New Zealand Embassy Warsaw, Poland

Bilateral relations

Warsaw, New Zealand Embassy building

Relations between New Zealand and Poland are friendly, recognising the roles that each respectively plays in the Asia-Pacific region and the European Union.  Poland opened its Embassy in Wellington in 1973, upgrading to full Ambassador status in 2004.  New Zealand opened its Embassy in Warsaw in April 2005, following Poland's accession to the EU.  Until then, New Zealand was represented in Poland by Honorary Consuls and by Ambassadors accredited from other European capitals. 
Alongside the trade work of the New Zealand Embassy, specialist trade advice is also provided by the New Zealand Trade and Enterprise office in Hamburg, covering all of Central and Eastern Europe.
Further information about both countries' relationships can be found through the Poland information paper on the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website, and through the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, bilateral information fact sheet, Asia Pacific Department, and the Polish Embassy in Wellington
