In an interview with Radio New Zealand this morning, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern mentions she will raise with Scott Morrison issues around the pathway to citizenship for Kiwis living in Australia. In particular the 2016 cutoff that means “there are now New Zealanders who have been in Australia for five years who are not eligible.”.
