Message from Ambassador
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam in New Zealand, where you can get an insight into the operation of the Embassy and have a greater understanding about Viet Nam with a population of more than 90 million, home to UNESCO Natural and Cultural Heritages and a fast-growing economy – an attractive destination to visit and do business.
Viet Nam and New Zealand established diplomatic relations on 19 June 1975. The two countries have a strong history of cooperation and the relationship is going from strength to strength across the trade, political and security spectrum. Ties between our people are the foundation of Vietnam-New Zealand friendship and a vibrant partnership in the future.
Growing personal connections reinforce the warmth of the bilateral friendship. Nearly 3,000 Vietnamese students study in New Zealand and numbers are expected to rise. New Zealand received more than 8,000 Vietnamese visitors in 2017, and Vietnam remains a popular destination for New Zealand tourists, with more than 29,000 in 2017.
The website of the Embassy will keep visitors updated on the country and people of Viet Nam, Viet Nam - New Zealand relationship as well as activities of Viet Nam Embassy in New Zealand.
Thank you for your visit.
