We also assist people in obtaining New Zealand Citizenship. It will usually take between five to eight months, sometimes twelve, from the time of lodgement to the time you will become a New Zealand citizen. This timeframe accounts for application processing, approval from the Minister and attending your ceremony.

Some of the conditions to be granted New Zealand citizenship is, that you must meet the requirements of either the Citizenship Act 1977 or the Citizenship Act (Western Samoa) 1982. You may meet the requirements of the Citizenship Act 1977 if you are:

  • an adult over 18 years meeting the general requirements
  • a child under 20 years meeting the general requirements
  • a person married to a New Zealand citizen
  • a person born outside New Zealand between 1 January 1949 - 31 December 1977, whose mother was a New Zealand citizen otherwise than by descent when they were born
  • a person in exceptional circumstances.

You may meet the requirements of the Citizenship Act (Western Samoa) 1982 if you are a citizen of Samoa.

All applicants must include original documents in their applications.

Please contact TNC for more information.
