Hi David,waikatodave wrote: ↑Tue Jan 16, 2018 2:14 pmI am having to reapply for my ROA due to an expiring NZ passport. Is anyone aware if this would take less time than an initial application. When I first applied 4 years ago it took about 20 days from confirmation of application to dispatch email. This application was when I was living in Australia, so the visa was issued in Manila(?)
I reapplied in November 2017, received my confirmation of application and payment taken on 1st December 2017, but have had no updates since then. I am factoring in Xmas delays, but by reading through the forum I may be in for quite a wait.
Also are the any government benefits or assistance available - I am running out of things to sell :/
I reapplied my ROA in April, it has been more than a month from confirmation of application email. I am wondering if you got back your passport already? If yes, when?
It is a little worrying as 5 years ago when I applied it took exactly 21 days for it to come back to me.
