2.2.4 Photocopy the first page of your passport (the one with your passport details) . Go to a legitimate Notary Public and have it Notarized as a Certified True Copy. No need to have it authenticated at the DFA and the Embassy.
2.2.5 Assuming that you already have the authenticated documents from DFA in hand plus your Notarized passport copy. Now call the New Zealand Embassy and ask for the schedule of authentication of documents (They only accept authentication twice or thrice a week and for a certain time period during the morning -- so it would be prudent to call them first for the skeds)
