Hey guys, been a while since I wrote on here during this long roller coaster of ups and downs.

Has anyone out there applied and recieved their citizenship while being just short of the exact requirements and still been granted.

Citizenship website says they can grant exceptions from time to time for good reason.

We have now entered our 4th year and starting to look ahead to our 5th and thinking ahead.

Requirements are 5 years since first entry, which we will have on 31st December 2013

1350 days in NZ, which we will have

240 in each year, which we will have for 3 years but be 50 days short for the first 2.

My question is, has anyone else been in this boat or know someone else and still been granted citizenship with a good reason?

Cheers Guys
