From New Zealand’s Minister of Women’s Affairs

On 19 September 120 years ago New Zealand made history.

This year we will be celebrating those very determined and courageous women who stood up and blazed the way with an act of leadership of international renown in 1893. They broke down barriers for women and subsequently helped change world attitudes. As we mark 120 years of Suffrage we also have the occasion to consider how we can further progress opportunities for women in the future.


The receiving office for New Zealand visa applications is about to change. From 10 December 2012, applications can no longer be lodged with the New Zealand Consulate-General in Geneva, and instead need to be sent to the New Zealand Visa Application Centre (VAC) in London. If you reside in the UK, you can submit your application to the VAC in person.


The Mission reception is open from 8.30 to 12.30 Monday to Friday.

The Mission is open in the afternoon to visitors with appointments and to New Zealanders who have had their money or passport stolen, or some other consular emergency.

In the case of New Zealanders in difficulty, please call the Consular Officer (022 929 0382) during normal office hours 8.30am to 5.00pm to discuss the issue and arrange a time to come to the Mission if required.
