    Hi Jon . I hope I find you well. I would like to raise a point with regards to applying for a new paspoort in Holland.
    My daughter did that and was refused entry back in to the country because they could not issue a re-entry permit in Holland .(For permanent residency . )

    Kind Regards ; Tim Timmermans.
    In the end I had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get her trough customs. By the way ,she was borne in NZ.

    Goedendag/Hi John, fantastic information service to us members, your supplied pro-active information re Consular extended opening hours at Auckland including extra Balie 2 to meet expected extra demand before closing by 1st October. Much appreciated and many thanks! Mariette

    (The passed on Embassy booking website link to make appointments is very handy. I happen to notice though using it today that for Auckland last September bookings, at extra Balie 2 where there are still available slots (unlike fast filling up Balie 1) there seems to be a website glitch with dates, as i.e correctly chosen 28 or 29 Sept slots do show incorrect on booking screen as one week earlier i.e. 21 or 22 Sept. A bit tricky re perhaps double bookings and others might have experienced the same too. Have thus already flicked email to embassy with request to look into it & fix in case they were unaware).
