Australian High Commission in New Zealand

The Australian High Commission is the official representative of the Australian Government in New Zealand. We provide a range of services to the general public, including consular, passport, visa and immigration, citizenship and cultural relations services. We also act on behalf of various Australian Government authorities by representing Australia’s interests to local, regional and multilateral government and business organisations in New Zealand.
