My bf and I are going through the same thing this year! We were offered ITA's just before Christmas so sent off for our nz police cert as soon as we realised (we should have done it sooner I know!) and I don't think we'll get a reply for them before our Canadian visa applications needs to be submitted. Had anyone had the police certificate extension, what sort of time frame do they give you to produce the certificate? Any information would be amazing! Thanks guys :D

You don’t get an extension so what you need to do is follow the instructions for police certificates for IEC in the link below. So you provide proof you have applied for one as well as any acknowledgement. As and when immigration want the certificate they will message you. NZ takes the full 20 days and given Xmas could be longer. Read the official link anyway
