So after being here a couple of months shy of 6 years we are now officially kiwis. It only took 2 months from start to finish and I'd highly recommend using the new process of making an appointment with a case officer - it really seemed to speed it up. Have a look at www.dia.govt.nz/New-Zealand-citizenship for more info

Congrats sarahw. Happy tree planting. We have kept one of our trees in a tub in case we move house. We can take it with us then.

Auckland Council must be a bit stingy - no tree for us...just a bit of one in the form of a certificate!

Congratulations! Can't wait to go for ours - two and a bit more years to go first though, but that will fly by I'm sure

Congrats!

The appointment thing must be new, it wasn't available when I applied last year. I didn't get a tree either, must be because of the Supercity
