Citizenship applications delayed processing

Sunaina made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Department of Internal Affairs should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Sunaina

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

Hi there
Just surprised with the processing time taken in citizenship applications
I have few questions to ask hope you will reply soon
1. Why it is taking so long to process the citizenship applications as I have seen people who applied in 2020 are still waiting for their outcome?
2. How many paper and online applications you received this year in first quarter( 1jan -31st March) second Quarter (1st April-30june) and third quarter (1july-30thSeptember) in Auckland office?
3. How many paper and online applications have been processed in the above three quarters?
4. Which month’s paper and online applications are being processed at present?

Yours faithfully,
