    Post NZ Citizenship applications submitted in 2021

    Hi all,

    I just submitted my NZ Citizenship application

    According to: https://www.govt.nz/browse/passports...z-citizenship/
    It takes 7 to 12 months to find out if your application is approved.
    So, I created this thread also for everyone who has submitted their Citizenship application in 2021, please share your timeline here and let's update each other here

    All the best!

    According to my calculations I should be able to apply the 10/08...

    According to my calculations I should be able to apply the 10/08...
    We just applied over the weekend - it's before the 5-year mark for us, and yes, the presence calculator said we were good to go.

    Yes it does, before applying I rang the DIA and after 30 mins of waiting, I spoke with them and they said yes we can apply before 5 years mark, provided:
    • at least 240 days in each 12-month period we're in the country, and
    • been in the country for 1,350 days across that 5 years.
    So, I think the calculator is accurate enough.

    According to this OIA:

    https://fyi.org.nz/request/15205-cit...incoming-58202

    As of 11 May 2021, the majority of Citizenship by grant applications currently being worked on
    were received by DIA during the months of July and August 2020. September applications will
    begin being processed accordingly.
