Default 3 months of waiting......

Hi,

We submitted our ITA 3 months ago and have heard nothing is it worth chasing them or is this normal without a job offer you just end up at the bottom of someones in tray at immigration?!
Starting to get really frustrated now with the whole thing just want to know whats happening - going crazy!

Hi it was 2 months before we heard, we submitted august 08 and assigned a co october 08. i guess it is probably busier at this time of year as people may tend to apply in the new year and also with the current climate more folk wanting to escape!! be patient you'll soon be caught up in the whirl wind!! good luck

Hi,

Keep in there - you're not alone!!

This is the current info from NZIS website: -
[F]Once the pre-populated application form is returned to the London branch it should be allocated to a visa officer within four months. As an example, for the week ending 3 April 2009 we are allocating applications submitted up to and including 29 December 2008.[/FONT]

so it shouldn't be long before a CO is assigned. Best of luck.

Hi
Yes you may have a wait as sjake says above. It varies depending on how busy NZIS are at the time.
For instance it took me 5 and a half months to receive an ITA after selection [I did complain] but then only 3 weeks for me to be granted PR in principle after they recieved my ITA No job offer

You're still within the timescale they quote on the NZIS website so they may well just direct you to that if you contact them:curse:
Stay positive,the whole process is very frustrating and annoying at times but you'll get there in the end. I don't think you can speed NZIS up at all

Good News - We think we have a visa officer! The reason we only think we have a visa officer is that we put a query onto the website regarding a change on my passport and what we should do as we dont have a visa officer yet. We had a response last night saying we have a visa officer and to send in a certified copy of my passport! When and how do we get contact from our visa officer phone, email, letter...?
Things may be moving now!!!

It's always heartening to hear anything from NZIS as it means things are moving along and it stops you wondering whether they haven't just forgotten you!
The first contact I had was when I got an email asking me to arrange a time for interview. I only took 3w to go from ITA received to PR so it's not a typical timescale. I didnt expect to hear that soon, All my plans were based on getting an answer 7m later
