The 2007 Hague Convention was ratified on 23 July 2021 and will be active in New Zealand from 1 November 2021.   

New Zealand will be joining 43 countries currently signed up to this agreement and Inland Revenue will be New Zealand’s Central Authority. This means that from 1 November 2021 we will be able to request collection and enforcement of child support and domestic maintenance from customers residing in 1 of the member countries. The member countries will also be able to ask Inland Revenue to collect from customers living in New Zealand.

You can find more information about the Convention on the Hague website.
