I'm always nervous of emails about credit card details. Are you sure they're from NZ immigration? Don't give out your credit card number or any other personal information on the back of these emails. I'd contact NZ Immigration directly and find out what's happening.

Mr.

Hello Topcat,


We never gave the card details by e-mail, it is an online application by which we have apply and transact the amount online for the application, and the mail I received is directly from the department of labour. But to confirm I am going to give them a call directly to wellington and check If my application has been chosen.

Please advise me if there is any chance of filing legal cases on immigration, since I have been deceived by them for accepting the application first and then rejecting due to technical error caused online, it 's their mistake.

Let me know. Many Thanks.

Hi Balitin

Balitin,

Yes. I will have to call them as I've just received another mail from Bangkok branch and it says,

“Dear XXXX,
Thank you for your Work visa application. Your application was received by us on 4-May-12.
Your application number is xxxxxx (this is exactly matching with web site info)
Your client number is xxxx (this is correct according to first email)

Once allocation is made, a Immigration Officer will contact you if they need further information. Until the officer has completed the initial processing, we will be unable to give you any further information regarding your application.
Please refer our website for expected processing timeframes at

Kind Regards,
Bangkok Branch
Immigration New Zealand “


This is also an automated email and I am really disapointing about their poor web site and I beleive that they must give us a chance to develop their web site. I am sure that I can develop a much better web site than their current site. :) :)

Hi All,

NZ immigration website has been updated the below message.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO SILVER FERN APPLICANTS WHO WERE IMPACTED BY THE TECHNICAL ERROR THAT OCCURRED SHORTLY AFTER THE SCHEME OPENED ON 04 MAY 2012

A technical error occurred shortly after the Silver Fern Job Search opened on Friday 4 May, which enabled people to submit applications and pay the application fee after all the places had been filled. All those affected were contacted on Friday and received an apology for the error and were advised they would receive a full refund.



Immigration New Zealand has received a lot of correspondence from the people affected by this error. It is clear that young, skilled people have very strong feelings about wanting the chance to come to New Zealand. In light of the large amount of feedback we have received, Immigration New Zealand has decided to accept applications from the people who completed the application process and paid the fee.



The affected people will be contacted individually via email over the next few days, with instructions for paying the fee and completing their applications.



Immigration New Zealand sincerely apologises for the error that occurred and any distress that this caused. We hope that this act of good faith will allay the concerns that have been raised with us. We are working with our system vendors to ensure this kind of technical error never occurs again.

Well, I have also received email confirmation that the silver fern visa application will be processed after repaying the 200 NZD and submitting the required documents.

Hope for no further changes with INZ policy on accepting the visa application.

I see most of us in this thread are from India. Lets have a count of how many have applied and fall under this category.

Hi

I had received an email from INZ last week and it was mentioned that
You will shortly be contacted by the branch responsible for processing your application with information about how to pay the fee and where to send your documents
I was waiting for the email from my branch (New Delhi) since then. However I did not get any email from them and I had contacted the new delhi office by email ([email protected]) today. Within few hours I received a reply from them and the content of the email is as below.



Dear Client,

You will have recently received an email confirming that your Silver Fern Job Search visa will be accepted for processing.

As you are aware, you need to provide evidence that you meet the requirements to be granted a Silver Fern Visa to our branch. Please provide the evidence set out on our website by 11 August 2011. Our postal address is:

Immigration New Zealand
C/o TT Services
214-214, Block A
Naurang House
21 Kasturba Gandhi Marg
New Delhi-110001


You will need to pay the application fee of INR 7800 or USD 180 by way of bank draft. The draft should be in favour of “Immigration New Zealand”. The INR draft should be payable at a bank in New Delhi and USD draft payable at a bank in USA. If you do not provide the fee, we will be unable to process your application.

We look forward to hearing from you.


Kind Regards,

Immigration New Zealand
New Delhi Branch

Please read this out and if anyone is from India waiting for this email, please write to them of the situation and see if they respond it this way for you too.... I have started to prepare my documents now... Good luck everyone!!
