New Zealand Embassy Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Lost or stolen passports
The first thing you should do if your New Zealand passport has been lost or stolen is report it immediately to the local police and obtain a police report.
The Embassy can issue an Emergency Travel Document (ETD) only for New Zealanders who do not have a valid passport and need to undertake urgent travel.
The ETD can normally be processed within two working days. If you live outside Riyadh, delivery time to and from the Embassy will need to be taken into consideration.
Application forms with instructions can be downloaded from the DIA website.
Please note: As of 1 July 2009 all holders of New Zealand ETDs travelling to or transiting through the USA will require a non-immigrant Visa, Class B1 or B2. B1 or B2 visa applications need to be made at the closest Embassy of the United States of America. Details about this requirement can be found on the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs website and the United States of America Customs and Border Protection website.
