Hi Ezza,

Sorry, to clarify, I was not implying that he get citizenship to move before the visa is granted - you mentioned "He'd love NZ citizenship". So as there is still an expectation that he'd be in NZ for 12 months he may as well become a citizen.

In 2010 consulate in Auckland processed my 309 application in about 6 weeks (together with some special police check requirement because I'm from Serbia - I guess a high risk country). The application was preloaded with everything we could obtain beforehand, including medical check. I hope you guys are granted visas very soon - processing time seems completely random to me. Good luck!

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone who applied for the defacto 309 in Auckland from June onwards in 2011 has had any news yet? Would love even a glimmer of hope!

Cheers,

PleaseAU

I got an email 2 weeks ago from Auckland branch - they are currently processing mid Sept 2011 applications, could be October by now. Does anybody know if we're allowed to leave NZ while application is pending?
