Default Citizenship

Hi all. Long time since I was last on this forum.

Just have a quick question about citizenship, we are not eligible yet any way just thinking of the future. I am aware you have to be resident for 5 years... but we originally came in 2009 on Work To Residence. Was approved Residency (the one with 2yr condition thingy) in october last year. Will have been here 3 years in July. So do we have to wait 5 years from October 2011 when residency was granted, or will they take it from 5 years from 2009 as we entered on WTR and were eligible for most things just like a resident?

Thanks.

You should do your own research at http://www.citizenship.govt.nz but as far as I understand the 5 year clock starts ticking when you become a permanent resident, and not before.
