Default The final piece of the puzzle

Well we have been here in NZ and Dunedin for well over 4 years and now we have just filled in out applications for Citizenship, cost for adult is $460 and child is $290 and you still have to buy passports oh well its the last piece of the puzzle for us, and as our UK ones are running out , its a good time to get Kiwi ones, they recon it should take a few weeks or a few months.

Crikey! Well worth it though. Congratulations! I can't wait to be in the same boat! Make sure you take lots of pics for your ceremony.

How long do the $400 passports last? Are the childrens passports the same? 'price and validity'

just curious x

We gained our citizenship lastMarch but we haven't yet sent in for our NZ passports.
According to the forms the standard cost for an NZ passport is $150 each for an adult and $80 for a child. The passports last 5 years.

I think I'd keep up the UK Passports. Not too many people can have dual nationality, and it'll give you the right of unlimited access to live and work in the EU and Oz and Nz..which might be a big advantage later on... especially for your children ..

Hi there.

You may do better to start a new thread as there are a few people on this board who live in Dunedin.

Hi NaoR,

I would suggest you start a thread in the Introductions sub-forum and perhaps a Meet Up's one in the (funnily enough ... ) Meet Up's sub-forum!

Welcome along to BE and happy posting.
