I challenge your xenophobia concept. How would the US embassy in NZ know

in New Zealand have a New Zealand email address? Are you saying even
Americans in New Zealand cannot email their embassy? Think about that.
I suspect you have quite a different problem.
I looked at the Arizona website and did not find any email addresses. In

"You may contact us by phone or mail for information and/or a complaint
form. Once you have done this, please mail us photocopies of your
supporting documents, including the form if submitting by mail..."
Have you submitted your complaint via any of their numerous online forms?
Perhaps they, like the FBI and other US agencies, do not accept email but

But do not think we are xenophobic based on a few bounced emails. It
would take a lot more than that to convince me, especially since you
could be an American student in NZ, or a contractor or a tourist - and you
