Cool Current processing time for Work Visa

Hi

I am knee deep in paper work/police checks/medicals etc but am trying to work out what date I could leave the UK for NZ and tell my employer as well as booking flights!

Has anyone just got their work visa and if so, how long did it take to process?
A friend did mine did hers in August '11 and it took 3 weeks, but once bitten twice shy as I've listened to some of these numbers before and they are usually wrong. (return time for UK passport included!)

Thanks

Ours was 5 days from sending the completed forms and passports to receiving the passports back. That was in July 2010 though.

Thanks Simonsi

I can only pray that mine is that quick! But I think at least a couple of weeks is more than I can hope for.

Mine was 3 weeks and that included getting a referral for a medical issue sorted.
