    If you phone DIA, they can give an estimate of when you can lodge your application.

    I obtained the records myself and manually calculated.

    I think their calculator is far from perfect, so a manual validation would put your minds at ease.

    Sorry for not reacting sooner, been away a couple of days.

    Yes, I can see that is a good reason, but, as Kelerei remarks, I would have thought it is more of an exception. But- fair enough.

    Not me but a member of forum Geekzone just shared his timeline:

    Woohoo sharing my citizenship timeline:

    So somehow his application is given priority? Apparently the queue is sitting at Oct/Nov 2020 at best.

    That seems so unfair. I applied in January 2021, in person & still waiting.

    Citizenship approval delays expected to ease mid-2022...

    Mid-2022... unbelievable

    Citizenship application is much easier to process compared to residency. Basically day count check + character. English is proven if lodged in person, otherwise very easy to process as well. Employment, income or acceptable standard of health are not part of the requirements.

    According to @cmsrana looks like the ordinary queue is now early Nov 2020.

    More than 30,000 people are waiting for their citizenship to be approved after a blowout in processing times.

    Read this story on RNZ Facebook and appalled how uninformed the average NZers are:

    Many can't even tell the differences between residency and citizenship.

    Many think it is to do with Immigration NZ.

    And many keep screaming the old cliche "They take our houses and they take our jobs"
