|O Consulado Honorário funciona em regime de voluntariado (sem remuneração) e existe principalmente para servir a comunidade portuguesa da Nova Zelândia.
The Honorary Consulate is a voluntary post (not funded), that exists principally to assist the Portuguese community of New Zealand.
When Portuguese citizens change their official residence in their citizens' card to a
New Zealand address, the enrolment is automatically updated with
the declared New Zealand address.
Likewise, when a voter enrolled in New Zealand applies for a citizens' card in Portugal and declares a Portuguese address in the
card, the voter is automatically enrolled in Portugal and needs to request a change in New Zealand.
To enrol as a voter in New Zealand (if an address in this country was not
declared in the citizens' card) you need to make an appointment to appear in person at the Honorary Consulate in Auckland, presenting your current Portuguese ID plus evidence of residence, for example a rates, rent or utility bill.
For more detailed information (in Portuguese) please consult
Enrolment is suspended 60 days before every election and resumes on the day following the election. Postal voting is allowed for some elections, for example for Parliament, but for others, like those for President of the Republic, the vote must be cast in person at the Consulate.
In cases where it is not possible to establish a voting booth in Auckland and the election requires presence in the Consulate, voters are able to cast their votes in Sydney. The Honorary Consul can only confirm if that is the case 60 days before election day.
It is not permissible to use special early vote facilities, in
cases where the voter resides overseas.
