    Dangles you can call them and ask for your AKL number over the phone.
    Then if you get anything at the expo keep the details written on paper untill your book arrives

    So if someone's selling or moving interstate they need to wait nine weeks to get an export permit? That's terrible. And I thought five days was bad, damn.

    To me the bit that was missing is the it could have killed several football teams "without treatment".

    Snake bite in Australia is now only fatal (for the most part) without treatment!

    re the

    Yep lozz,thats the way it goes,then you get the suck holes that say they are under staffed,i couldnt give a stuff,they need to get their act together at DECC with some modernisation of the system,just sending the poxy record back by post cost about 4.50 with the size.
    I expect proffessional government departments to run things to best methods in 2010 not the way things were done before computers and such.
    Theyve gone all FLINTSTONES an stuff.

    Crikey! I know a nine week delay in red tape cutting is nasty, but would it really kill several football teams? Ouch!

    *yeah, okay, I'll stop now, lame, I know*
