How is life treating you? We haven't chatted in a long time.

All good here I'm still working as a TA at a local school , hubby hasn't had as much work this year, both my 'children' work in Wellington so we've visited WGN several times this year already.
How are you? I was only thinking yesterday how I don't see the people from 2006-7 posting very often.

I was wondering what the waiting time for acceptance and then the citizenship ceremony is?

We are hoping to submit the forms in October and looking at holiday travel in the new year. I have read the old posts on BE that passports are taken so not to plan travel for 6 months?
Any recent experiences with this please share
Thanks
It took one calendar month from applying to receiving the official letter saying congratulations. Just waiting on a date for the ceremony which gives us the officail citizenship document.

Well..... after 9 years of living here, tomorrow the 4 of us will be citizens.
It took about 4 weeks for the paperwork and then about 6 weeks waiting for the next ceremony.
I am really looking forward to the ceremony and becoming a Real Kiwi.

Just got the date for our ceremony and all in all it will be exactly 2 months and 5 days from the day we submitted our paperwork to the day we officially become kiwis. So not bad at all. Looking forward to the 20th August
