    Default Most immigrants plan on citizenship

    Most immigrants plan on citizenship
    27/09/2010

    More than three quarters of immigrants to New Zealand plan to apply for citizenship three years after arriving, a long term survey shows.

    The latest results of Statistics New Zealand's Longitudinal Survey published this morning showed that 78.4 per cent of migrants either had started, or intended to start, the process of applying for a New Zealand passport three years after being granted permanent residency.

    Migrants from South Africa were the most likely to want to become citizens (93.3 per cent) ahead of Pacific Islanders (93 per cent) and South Asians (86.5 per cent).

    From here.

    They are going to be disappointed then. I'm under the impression it now takes 5 years until a resident can put in an application for citizenship. And it's not just '5 years after arriving in NZ', more like 'after having held NZ PR for 5 years'. It used to be 3, but changed to 5 a few years ago because it appeared that many people were using their NZ citizenship as a quick way into Oz.
