Dear Auckland Council,
As we know before the COVID-19 situation the timeframe for the citizenship was 3 to 5 months. As i understand during COVID-19 you make the time frame to 5-10 months little longer which is acceptable due to lockdown situation.
Now the COVID-19 situation is properly handled by the government, election finished and the businesses are going back to normal but your time frame is still the same. Can you please tell us when the Citizenship department will go back to normal timeframes and also can you please explain the breakdown of 5-10 months timeframe you need for so everyone have the clear picture regarding the timeframe.

Kia ora Bharatbhai Patel
