The New Zealand 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.

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.

As fellow members of the Commonwealth of Nations, diplomatic relations between New Zealand and India are at governmental level, rather than between Heads of State. Thus, the countries exchange High Commissioners, rather than ambassadors.
