    I don't know exactly, but my friend who applied online at the end of September 2020 was assigned a case worker on 2 August 2021.

    Iím guessing citizenship by birth applications - people who never planned to get their citizenship sorted but who now see the benefit of living on an island at the bottom of the world.

    Citizenship by birth is determined at the time that the birth is registered -- I'm guessing you meant citizenship by descent? In any case, it's a relatively simple process for one to register this (as one only needs to prove one's parentage to the Department of Internal Affairs), and wouldn't hold up applications for citizenship by grant in any meaningful way.

    Citizens by descent can change their status to that of a citizen by grant (in order to allow them to pass on NZ citizenship to children born outside NZ), but they must meet the same requirements as anyone else applying for citizenship by grant, so any Covid-related influx of this will only present itself in the next 4-5 years.

    Best option is to send an annonymized request on FYI.ORG.NZ

    There are many previous requests and responses that provide an insight into the procedures and working of highly inefficient dept.

    My partner applied back in early Oct 2020 and was only assigned a case officer last week. The timeframe they're currently quoting is 9-14 months. Hope that helps!
