Questions & Answers on China Consulate in Auckland
Asked by Kim Francis from NZ | Dec. 11, 2019 12:51Reply
I'm desperate to find where my passport/visa is at as i am travelling this weekend.
I've tried all the numbers I could find and can't get through to a person or even a way to leave a message.

How can I contact someone to check on the status / whereabouts of my passport? I was told the visa was approved last Wednesday...

Many thanks

You should first contact the courier services company and ask if they have sent you package to the embassy or consulate. If yes, then you should go to the embassy in person to get your passport back.

visa application to China from Nz
I'm going to China for a conference from New Zealand but I am from Nepal. My visa in Nz is going to expire but I have applied for the student's visa for extension but not sure when I will get back from them. Should I wait until I get my NZ visa or can I apply for a Chinese visa first?

Many thanks

if you still have time, you'd better wait for the NZ visa.
