Question Case Manager Allocation

Dear all,

am newbie and this is the best web portal i have seen people exchanging their views and getting benefit without spending a single penny. Indeed appreciate ALL all MODERATORS and contributors.

was wondering about my permanent residency application filed under Wellington branch under Skilled Migrant category. Here below is the status:-

--------
EOI Submission- 25/01/12
EOI Selected- 15/02/12
ITA Received- 27/02/12
ITA Submitted- 15/05/12
Lodgement Date Appeared (logging in on immigration website)- 16/05/12
Letter Received- 24/05/12 (with original documents)

A few words in Letter- "Your application will be allocated to a Case Officer within 16 weeks. An application normally takes 9-12 months to process."
--------

I was just wondering if it really takes 9-12 months for a decision...

Also what is the tentative time period going on for case manager allotment for Wellington branch?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

purely based on your info provided I am assuming you are applying within the family category as this category has such timelines for approval. this is becuase they have such a high number of applications and relatively low quota of places. My parents were in a queue for three years befire they got approved.

All case officers are allocated according to the type of visa you have applied for and if you have a job offer or not. If you have a job offer, you will be allocated a case officer immediately, if not depending upon which visa you are applying for will determine the length of time before you get one.

If your letter states that length of time, unfortunately it probably will take that long.

I think you may have been sent the wrong letter, our ITA turned up already with a case officer assigned by name....

Thanks Simonsi-
My letter indictaes- "Following documents are required...."
But there is nothing mentioned. I think that is only the template and because no other document is required thats why nothing mentioned over there.

I rang Immigration call centre and they said- 'Your application has been lodged on 16/05 which means all documents are appropriate at the moment but case manager has not been allocated.'

one of my friends got similar letter (one and half months after submissing ITA) with lodgement and Case Manager name.

UPDATE- Rang them on friday and they said we asked for your police certificate from NZ police and received on 29/05. I asked them that it was not initiated by me and in reply they said immigration internally asks police certificate from NZ police.

Not sure what's happening...

This is normal procedure if you are already in New Zealand.

May I also just say that time-lines are on a case by case basis.

You have caught my eye. What made you assume this .

You mention your parents. Please expand. Thanks

Hi Bevs- I assumed that purley because the timelines for SMC are much faster than 9-12 months normally (it is three months max for london branch) so I assumed the category applied for must have been a family category as I myslef looked into that category because my parents and adult sibling (sister) all now live in NZ and this is how long they say it takes before even a case officer is assigned for that category. I am surprised to hear it is SMC, but if that is how long it takes if you lodge in NZ I am glad I will be lodging from the UK!!

BEVS- Thanks for your expert comments. Appreciate.
I have mentioned in first few lines that residency visa applied is under Skilled Migrant Category and not related to family.
I didn't mention parents anywhere. Somebody said in reply that I have filed under Family Category which I said I didn't.

Hope this clarifies.

@Jamesh- Your last line was interested though...

Thanks for all your replies. Hope for the best

Oh dear. It was clear from the opening post that luck007 was applying under the SMC category.

Actual time frames are based on a wee bit more than just where an application is lodged. It is a case by case basis.

I've just seen another of your posts which was very mis-leading . Whilst all help is thankfully received here on NZ BE, please do take a care when replying to others in the Immy section. It's also best to double check with the official NZIS website.

Cheers.

Persephone is a vet & also on the ball with the NZ Immy stuff from what I read.
The same can't be said about you . Maybe homework should be set.

Please remember that there are real people on the other end of the queries posted.

Oh dear. Read it again, I didn't say 'I'm going to be a teacher'

If that was somehow meant to be an insult then I'll give you 'F' for both effort and execution...
