Services › Citizenship › Approved Translation Agencies

All documents not in English must be translated. Translation services approved by the New Zealand Citizenship Office are listed below.

We will also accept official translations of documents into English by the following:
  • The issuing Government agency.
  • A New Zealand diplomatic post overseas.
  • A court in the country of origin if they have been authenticated by that country's diplomatic post in New Zealand.
Original documents must be sent in with the English translation.

If you need an English translation, include NZ$50.00 for each document that requires translation by the Translation Service. The Citizenship Office will organise an official translation, which will be returned to you with your documents.

Alternatively, you may contact one of the following agencies (please note, the fees may differ).
