This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order replaces the Diplomatic Privileges (Cook Islands) Order 1987. The new order is in the same substantive terms as the 1987 order except that—
to reflect the new titles of both the High Commissioner and the High Commission.
This order confers full diplomatic privileges and immunities on the Cook Islands High Commissioner in New Zealand, members of the Cook Islands diplomatic staff in New Zealand, and on members of the families of such persons who form part of their household. In addition, the Cook Islands High Commission in New Zealand is conferred with the same immunity from jurisdiction, and inviolability, enjoyed by diplomatic missions in New Zealand.
