Emergency travel documents

This Embassy cannot at this time provide emergency service for the issue of Emergency Travel Documents (ETDs). The ETD will need to be applied for through the nearest New Zealand Embassy (The Hague or Berlin). The ETD should be processed within a maximum of three working days. The fee is subject to currency fluctuations and costs approximately:

  • Adults/Children: NZ$350 equivalent. An after-hour call-out fee is applicable.

This is not a replacement passport - it is an emergency travel document and will only be issue in an emergency or for compassionate grounds. The emergency travel document has a validity of one month (some exceptions do apply).

If you need to make use of this service, please call the Embassy (46) 08 463 3116, Monday-Friday, 9.00am-5.00pm or after hours on (46) 08 463 3116 (gives Duty Officer contact details).

The emergency travel document application form can be downloaded from the Department of Internal Affairs website.
