Kia ora, welcome to the home of Uruwhenua Aotearoa | New Zealand passports
Almost everyone can do this from anywhere in the world. No paper, postage or visits to our office. Check if you can - it takes less than a minute.
We step you through what happens from start to finish.
You need your previous passport (if you have one), the details of a person who is your referee, a photo, and a credit card. It's that simple.
If you start your passport application and you don't have everything you need you can save and come back to it later.
A standard adult passport costs NZD$180 and takes up to 10 working days to process. An urgent passport costs NZD$360 and takes up to 3 working days to process. Further fees information available here.
You need a photo as part of your passport application. It needs to meet our requirements to be accepted. More information on photos can be found here.
You can apply online if you need a passport within 3 working days. Or you can call us if you need to travel sooner or you have an emergency.
We can replace most people's lost, stolen or damaged passports online. Find out what you need to do.
To change the name in your passport you need a new passport. If your name change took place in New Zealand you can renew your passport online.
