New dates Pop-Up Consular desks in New Zealand

To make the passport application process easier and more accessible for Dutch citizens in New Zealand, the consular team of the Netherlands Embassy in Wellington travels through New Zealand this year.

The embassy has now finalised the plans for the remainder of 2019. You can find the consular pop-up desk in the following towns and cities in the next few months:

Auckland                             - 9 and 10 October

Nelson                                 - 24 October*

Invercargill                         - 13 November*

Christchurch                      - 14 November

*The Embassy will organise a Dutch get together with the Ambassador on these days. More information will follow soon, keep an eye out for our Facebook post about these events.

What services will be provided?

The Pop Up consular desk will not only provide the opportunity to submit an application for a passport, we will also be available for the activation of your DigiD, applications for consular declarations and/or applications for a declaration of Dutch nationality.

Who can use the service of the Pop Up consular desk?

This opportunity is for all Dutch passport applicants. But passport applicants for whom a visit to the Embassy is particularly burdensome, due to physical, medical or other urgent reasons (e.g. elderly or disabled people, families with children) will get preference.

How to make an appointment?

We will open the appointment system specifically for the Pop Up Consular desk. Please note you can only book via the appointment system, not via email or phone! A special announcement will be made for each visit and will include instructions on how to book your appointment.

This a pilot and we will evaluate this service at the end of the year also in order to decide on whether we can continue in 2020.

More detailed information will follow soon, please keep an eye out on our website or our Facebook page: @netherlandsembassywellington

The various Dutch clubs will be notified as well.

The consular team looks forward to meeting you in the region!
