From January 2022 the consular section of the embassy will be open for Passport/ID card/MVV applications as well as DigiD activations from Monday to Thursday from 9:00-12:30 and 13:00-14:30.
As we are an essential service, we will not require proof of COVID-19 vaccination under the NZ Government traffic light system to enter the embassy. We will however continue with our current protocol to keep you, your family and our staff safe.
- Customers need to send in their paperwork by email before their appointment to avoid handling too much paperwork.
- Customers can only arrive a maximum of 5 minutes ahead of their scheduled time. There will be signs downstairs in the lobby of the building and in hallways.
- Only one person is allowed in the waiting room at any time. Families are allowed to come with more than one to the embassy waiting room.
- All customers need to scan in using their NZ COVID Tracer or sign in when entering the waiting room, sanitize their hands and wear a mask. QR code, sign-in, sanitizer and masks are available at the entrance.
