New Zealand High Commission London, United Kingdom

What the High Commission does

The New Zealand High Commission is an overseas post of the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.  The focus of the High Commission's work is managing New Zealand's political, economic and trade relations with the United Kingdom and Ireland.

We can also provide consular advice to resident and visiting New Zealanders, including emergency assistance and advice in the case of deaths, arrests, and hospitalisation.

It is important to be aware however, that the High Commission is limited in what it can do and does not have funds available for those who fall into financial difficulty. For more information about what we can and can’t do on a consular level, please go to this link.

The most common request is for a replacement passport which is the responsibility of the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA), and not the High Commission.  Please follow this link for information from the London Passport Office: London Passport Office

Please follow this link for information about Citizenship, Births, Deaths and Marriages: New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs

The High Commission is not able to assist with recommending New Zealand businesses to sponsor events and organisations in the UK. We are not permitted to disclose the contact details of businesses or individuals resident here.
