How to renew your New Zealand passport

1. Know what you need

  • Previous passport details
  • Referee details
  • Credit, debit, or prepaid card to pay

2. Find a referee

Your identity referee needs to have held a NZ passport (it can be expired), have known you for at least a year, and be over 16. They can’t be related to you or living with you. You’ll need their passport number and expiry date, full name, date of birth, and phone number.

3. Apply online

Go to www.passports.govt.nz. Your last passport has the information you’ll need to start your application.

4. Save and upload your photo

Open the passport photo email from Warehouse Stationery and save your photo somewhere you can easily find it again, such as your desktop. Upload the photo as part of your application.

5. Pay online and submit your application

NZ Passports will send you an email as soon as your passport has been completed.

How to apply for your first NZ passport

If you’re over 16 and have never had a NZ passport before, you can apply online. You’ll need to visit www.realme.govt.nz to set up a RealMe verified identity if you don’t already have one.
