so, i thought i might start a new thread where those of us that get from EOI - visa could note their details for others to see all in one place? might not work, but thought it worth a go!

so, here's ours:
125 POINTS, EXPERIENCE IN FUTURE GROWTH AREA, NO JOB OFFER
EOI SUBMITTED 19 JUNE 08
ITA RECEIVED 11 SEPT 08
ITA SUBMITTED 17 NOV 08
PR IN PRINCIPLE 17 MAR 09

PRETTY MUCH 9 MONTHS FLAT

Great Idea!!

Here goes:
9th November 2008 EOI SUBMITTED ONLINE with job offer
19th November EOI SELECTED
11th December ITA RECEIVED
15th December all MEDICALS / X-RAYS BOOKED
24th December Collected Meds etc from Medical Centre
29th December Posted ITA (with all original documents incl. passports plus just a photocopy of each item. We didn't bother to pay for certified copies. All sent in royalmails silver envelope, for special next day delivery cost about £8)
23rd January EMAIL CONFIRMING APPLICATION APPROVED
9th February VISA STICKERS IN PASSPORTS !!

EOI to VISA in passports 3months exactly ! (no telephone interviews or anything)

That was quick!! Will you go without selling first? Will they keep your job offer open? good luck!

I am impressed at how long it takes to get through the immigration process for NZ as opposed to the application for Canada (3+ years). Does it matter how many points you have at the outset (205)?

EOI selected 5/12/07
ITA received 16/5/08 and yes the dates are correct. Complaint letter sent to NZIS 10/5/08:curse:
ITA returned 31/5/08

interview 13/6/08
Approved PR in principle 24/6/08

So around 6m to go from selected to PR approved, 5.5m EOI to ITA, then 3w ITA to PR. My timeline is unusual to say the least!!

Finally got round to sending in my passport and getting the blue stickers 22/9/08 and received passport back on the 1/10/08

Arrived NZ 7/12/08
got similar delay in the EOI stage about sending ITA soon
Best of luck for all applicants who are in similar phase
