New Zealanders are exempt from this surcharge.  However, those applying for UK visas will still need to get a “surcharge reference number” from the surcharge website in order to complete their application.

This Anzac day marks 100 years since the Gallipoli landings and we want to organise something really special to commemorate the significance of this day and the unimaginable sacrifices the ANZACs made for us.

We want to show the people of the UK, and those watching around the world, that we have not forgotten those boys. We will remember them. And what better way than through music and our culture.

At the end of the Dawn service on the 25th of April, held at Hyde Park corner, Ngāti Rānana, will lead a mass performance of the WWI Waiata ‘E Pari Rā ’.  We want as many people as possible to join us for this special occasion. You don’t need any experience only enthusiasm!
