It seems that Hobbit-Land is experiencing a modest influx of ex-pat Americans. In the first 12 weeks since the election of Donald Trump 170 Americans have applied for citizenship in New Zealand, up from 100 during a similar period of time last year.

You must, generally speaking, live in New Zealand for five years before applying for citizenship though there are exceptions for people who have one or more parents who have New Zealand citizenship.

During the two days after the election the number of inquires into the webs site concerning New Zealand citizenship jumped from s normal 305 to 4,145.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Bob, would you check to see if Rosie O'Donnell and Barbara Streisand were among the applicants.
