What about overseas spouses?
The answer to all these questions can be found in a document titled New Zealand Marriage Act 1998 – New Zealand Passport.
The law is still on the books but New Zealand’s Citizenship and Immigration Department, which is responsible for issuing the passports, have changed their position and the law now allows for overseas marriages.
A passport issued in New South Wales, Victoria, the ACT or Queensland will not be accepted.
However, New Zealand passports issued in Queensland will be accepted for travel within Australia.
The document does not give details of the marriage ceremony.
A copy of the New Zealand marriage certificate will be required for entry into the United Kingdom.
However, in a statement issued last week, the Department of Internal Affairs said the department was working on a proposal to clarify the issue of overseas marriages and the New South Welsh passports will be the only passports that will be issued to New Zealand citizens.
It will be in line with the Department’s other passport arrangements, it said.
The Department said it was aware that the Marriage Act, which came into force in February, did not apply to overseas marriages, and that the issue had not been addressed.
It said the new law was “in line with previous legislation” but added: “There are currently no plans to issue any new passports in the future, and the issue is being considered”.
In the meantime, New Zealander John Fennell has been issued with a marriage certificate in the United States, where he lives, but that is a non-issue.
Mr Fenn, a former partner of the Australian couple who are the parents of their daughter, is currently in the US on a diplomatic mission.
He said he was happy to be able to get the document from New Zealand.
“I’ve been in a relationship for nine years, but they have been able to give me a New Zealand wedding certificate.

In 2015, more than 5,000 marriages were granted overseas, the highest number since 1996.
But it has faced criticism over the number and extent of foreign marriages in New Japan, which has a relatively small population of about 2.5 million.
In December, the Foreign Minister, Peter Dunne, was criticised by the Opposition for saying the Government was “getting ready” to issue overseas marriage licences.
He was forced to apologise after he was caught on video telling a media briefing he would “look into it”.
