My wife got hers renewed last year - it really is very simple, and the service you get in NZ exceeds that in the UK by miles.

My wife was one of the first to travel with the new type of passports with the chip included, every immigration official between Auckland and Heathrow (we stopped over in Singapore) had a good look at it and showed it to all their mates.

You still got some family in the UK Sky?

Husband and son's passports have both expired and this is what we're going to do.

* Ask MIL to post us some passport renewal forms from PO.

* Fill in forms and post to UK High Commission - pay fee via credit card for 66 Pounds or $150 (give or take) and don't mention that we live abroad...

* Have the HC send them to my MIL in Devon

* Ask her nicely to send them back to me.

Got to be cheaper than $300 a pop via Wellington...

The British High Commission won't process a passport application that way, sorry. But they can issue you a passport directly.
