    Good luck cuz,

    Mine took 11 months and 10 days, from my interview in late February, to it appearing in my letter box. These people are beyond useless.
    After six months they provided me with an email to cover me in case I was stopped on the road or for purchases etc. Up until then they wouldn’t do anything.

    Turn time in Christchurch, 5-6 weeks.......

    They are overloaded in Otago, did my interview on boxing day because they had a free slot.

    @Rushy who do you contact to get the AO name?

    Manukau Police station have an AO stationed there, call him/her?

    I notice some (Dunedin, Invercargill etc) don’t have an arms officers name.

    And some stations (Alexandra, Balclutha etc) not even listed.

    Sorry mate I have seen this a bit late. I have had a relationship with an AO on the North shore that I have dealt with for decades. Others have provided the link to the AO names in areas and yes, call him / her.

    First time applicant here. After waiting several months, my referees have now each been emailed a questionnaire to answer. Could this be in place of a formal interview? Good to see some progress, at least.

    Your referees will still be interviewed face to face.

    An update for you fellahs. Two weeks down the track and I now have had contact and vetting appointment timings discussed. The cynic in me would throw in the old adage that the squeaky wheel is the one that gets oiled.
