The zone leaders asked the following question:
Does a convert have to be rebaptised if there is a long delay between baptism and confirmation? I can't see any policy on this and my feeling is that this would be a decision for the Mission President.
Any thoughts would be gratefully recieved.

Baptism and confirmation are two separate ordinances. The only requirement is one must be baptized first before being confirmed. While confirmations are traditionally accomplished at the time of baptism there is nothing that states it should be done within any specific period of time.

Because converts normally are not confirmed at the time of baptism, but later in a sacrament meeting, there is sometimes quite a wait between the two ordinances. But the only requirement I know of is, as Gary_Miller says, that the baptism happen first.
The mission president will be able to counsel the missionaries on the matter.
