Passport fee questions and answers

Passport fee questions and answers as of 30 November 2015.

Exchange rate reviews

As all passport fees are regulated in NZD, from time to time we have to review the fees for applications lodged outside of New Zealand to ensure we are charging the correct fee.

Where to lodge your applications

Send your application to your nearest New Zealand Passport office. Alternatively, contact your nearest New Zealand Embassy, High Commission or Consulate to see if you can submit your application via their office for an additional fee. Please note, not all offices provide this service.

You will pay a delivery charge if you apply through a diplomatic post

If you submit your application via a New Zealand Embassy, High Commission or Consulate office an additional fee of NZD$50.00 is payable. This is paid directly to the diplomatic post in the local currency of the country you are in.  Please note, not all offices provide this service.

If your new passport is being sent to a different delivery address rather than the same diplomatic post where you submitted your application, the relevant international courier fee will also be charged.

International courier fees and other charges

If you want your passport delivered to a different country from the country where you are lodging your application, you will need to pay a courier fee for delivery. The international courier fee will vary depending on where your new passport is being delivered.

International deliveries may be subject to additional fees and charges, imposed for example by the courier company and/or customs of the country where your new passport is being delivered to. These fees and charges can not be paid in advance to the Department of Internal Affairs, instead have to be paid directly to the courier company and/or customs by the applicant in the country of delivery.
