    On their website it says they are processing Mar 2021 applications. If they only manage to clear a month worth of applications each month, I honestly don't see how the backlog can be cleared *sigh*

    You're right. At best they're just keeping up with an increased backlog, but certainly not getting reducing times. It's a month to clear a month and has been for a long time.

    Some April cases have probably began though.

    I applied online on 15 of March 2021 and I haven't heard anything from them so far.

    Another annoying thing is that the last sentence on their page says Page last updated: DD MMMM YYYY but no matter how hard I looked I couldn't find what has been updated. It happens every time that sentence was updated LOL.
    I just applied last month so I guess my life would be uneventful in this sense for the rest of the year!

    So if you applied in Feb-21 and still havenít got any news, itís a good idea to email citizenship@dia.govt.nz; as according to the government website, the oldest application being assessed is from Mar-21 i.e. all Feb-21 should be done now.

    It took me exactly a year today.

    Applied in person, Wellington office: 11 Feb 2021.

    CO allocated: 29 Dec 2021.

    Email to confirm details: 30 Dec 2021.

    Approved in principle: 04 Feb 2022 (no email notifications, I only knew this until I emailed citizenship@dia.govt.nz and they replied)

    Citizenship certificate to be printed: 21 Feb 2022.

    Hi smcvisa93, I feel you mate. Ours was 01Feb and still no certificate. Been trying to ring DiA but it is a mission trying to connect to one of their officers. Been giving myself 30mins each day since last week waiting on the phone that someone will answer and my wife is also doing this. All we have is email confirming they will send it to our address. I have no idea when (as noted within 2months) or if they will give tracking ref sending that docs. My family is not on the hurry, its just that we cannot book for domestic holiday this April Easter unless we have that certificate.

    We have waited this long so a bit more patience will not harm us.

    to add

    trying to call DiA....

    is it just me, the DIA number rings twice then drops?... is there someone lucky enough had a discussion with DIA officer about their concern? After you dial, how long or minutes before the phone was being answered?
