Hi Lucky007,

The maximum processing time is 6 months, but most of the cases will be completed in 3 months once a Case Office is assigned. It takes 3 to 4 weeks for a case officer to be assigned. At this moment you are staying on what Visa at Wellington?

Can't say the processing times for other parts of the world, but London is generally 12 months without a job offer and 6-9 months with a job offer. To get Residency approved in 3 months would be fast and a miracle in my opinion. Can take a month to get ITA after EOI selected then you have 4 months to hand over the formal application and provide all your evidence paperwork - that's 5 months and Immigration haven't even assigned your application to a case officer!!! Be aware you are NOT going for Permanent Residency. You cannot do this. You will be applying for Residency only. Still allows you to stay in NZ permanently but it is not PR. It will have travel conditions and also work conditions if you already have a job offer. You can only obtain PR when you have been a Residency Visa holder for 2 years minimum and satisfied one of five criteria. You could apply for a Temporary Work Visa in the interim. These are processed fast and can only be obtained with a job offer. This then allows travel quickly. You can then transfer your Residency visa application to NZ office and that can be ticking along in the background whilst you are living here on the Temp Work Visa. Just another option if you need to be here quicker.

Hello Vishwanathan,
Here you can find those five criteria to qualify for Permanant Residency.
RV2.5 How do resident visa holders or former holders qualify for a permanent resident visa?

The easiest way to secure PR visa is :
RV2.5.1 Significant period of time spent in New Zealand

A principal applicant has demonstrated a commitment to New Zealand if they have been in New Zealand as a resident for a total of 184 days or more in each of the two 12-month portions of the 24 months immediately preceding the date the date their application for a permanent resident visa was made (ie, in each of the two 12-month portions, a period or periods that amount to 184 days or more).

Hi,

Thanks for the information.

i have applied through registered agent so i don't have any document or reference number so that i can check any where.. I have to get the information from agent only.

Do we need to get email or any other communication/notification from the NZ with respect to corresponding ITA steps such as CO Assign, Interview schedule, Interview result etc.. etc..

I hava applied on 12th of Feb 2014 so what will be expected time frame as i have not received any time frame mail communication.

Yes, you will be informed for CO assign and interview, and you will requested to submit additional documents if any. Some times they might be very silent even they started the process and doing.

Did anyone notice that the allocation times changed on the London Immigration page?
For applications without a job offer, it says that you will be assigned a case officer in 1-2 months. I swear it used to be longer...
