Can I simply extend my New Zealand passport?

edited October 2010 in World Wide
Hi, my New Zealand passport is expiring in just over five months time and my friends in Israel have booked my tickets to leave in a few days time.

I am living in London. I have a right of abode here for the UK, and also have British citizenship. I don't have a British passport.

I am going to help someone in Israel, and I am not going just for a holiday. Can I simply extend my New Zealand passport?

Or will the NZ consulate simply want me to get an emergency passport? It seems that I won't qualify for an emergency one because I still have my passport i.e I haven't lost it, had it stolen, and it has not been defaced.

Please let me know as soon as anyone has some information about this as it is getting very urgent.

Thanks, Paul.
