The British High Commission in Wellington, together with the British Consulate-General in Auckland, represents the UK government in New Zealand. We are also here to support and protect UK interests in Pitcairn Island and Samoa.

Our two offices work together to support the full range of British interests in New Zealand, building Britain’s prosperity through increased trade and investment in open markets and supporting British nationals who visit and live in New Zealand through our consular services answering over 3,000 enquiries yearly.
