    This is not an unusual length of time for processing yet, and also, when you applied, it was in the middle of the NZ summer holiday season, when a lot of the INZ staff will have been taking leave while their children were off school.

    Yes, unfortunately a lot of Immigration Officers take holidays during December and January, but the visa applications continue to keep flowing in, leaving most offices with a back-log situation in the first few months of the year. 2 months may seem like a long time but is probably not outside what is considered standard at the moment.
