List of High Commissioners of New Zealand to Kiribati
The High Commission is located in South Tarawa, Kiribati's capital city. New Zealand has maintained a resident High Commissioner in Kiribati since 1989. The High Commissioner to Kiribati is concurrently accredited to the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.
As fellow members of the Commonwealth of Nations, diplomatic relations between New Zealand and Kiribati are at governmental level, rather than between Heads of State. Thus, the countries exchange High Commissioners, rather than ambassadors.
