Default Migration Timeline

Hello,

I am from India and was looking to apply for skilled migration to NZ.

How long does it take to get the PR visa from India, does anyone know current timeline?

Thanks,

CA

It is not PR. One only becomes eligible for PR after you have held RV for a minimum of 2 years.
What you mean is RV. Still a permanent class visa but it has conditions which can be removed after 2 years by applying for PR.

If you have a job offer it is likely to take anything from 6 - 9 months.
Without a job offer more likely 12 months plus.

If you apply without an NZ job offer, NZ study experience or NZ work experience you will not be approved for RV. The most you could expect in this situation is a Job Search Visa.
New rules were introduced August 2017 making it mandatory for an applicant to have one of these three attributes in order to be approved RV.

From when I submitted my EOI (with a job offer from an accredited employer) until my visa was approved was a bit more than 4 months in 2012. One month of that was due to INZ requesting another police clearance. Once that was received the application was approved within 24 hours and I sent my passport over to the UK for my "blue stickers" that same day.
