The High Commissioner to India is New Zealand's foremost diplomatic representative in the Republic of India, and in charge of New Zealand's diplomatic mission in India. As fellow members of the Commonwealth of Nations, the countries exchange High Commissioners, rather than ambassadors.

The High Commission is located in New Delhi, India's capital city. New Zealand has maintained a resident High Commissioner in India since 1970, except for a period from 1982 until 1985. The Ambassador to India is concurrently accredited to Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
