Default Paper Application Attempted Delivery - Office Closed

So I've been tracking my paper visa application for the past 2 weeks. It says that they attempted delivery on the 11th July, but the office was closed so they left a card! No update since.

Is this normal? Bit worried that it's going to make its way back to me in another 2 weeks' time...

Will INZ collect it from some sort of sorting/delivery office? Or will they re-attempt the delivery?

The address I was told to send it to was:
Immigration New Zealand,
Level 3,
20 Amersham Way,
Manukau City 2104,
Auckland,
New Zealand

I had this with my nursing registration they automatically re-delivered it. are you tracking it via NZ post? try emailing them. I've also had one tracked to local hub but was not scanned again as delivered, however it must have been as I got a confirmation from the people I sent it to.

Good idea. Would they just need my name to check it's been received? Just cautious now that I'm emailing them too much

Tracking through Royal Mail. NZ Post website doesn't give me in-depth tracking options for the package. Just that it's undelivered.

What's amazed me the most is how quickly it travelled from my local post office to taking off from Heathrow in less than a day. Then sat in Auckland for over a week after having arrived...

No idea about client/application numbers so I'll just give them my name then.

Yours arrived in days?! How did you sort that one out? Mine cost me £15+ to post, and that was on the 30th June.

That was my exact experience. 5pm on a Friday, then was on the plane already by Saturday. The package getting to Auckland wasn't the problem. It was the package just sitting around chillin' in Auckland for a week before it went anywhere else

Exactly!

I'm sure my package is just soaking up the Kiwi lifestyle, recovering from the jetlag.

It's easier to be laid back when everything and everyone else around you is laidback. I can and will totally get behind that.

But right now, I have my British hat on and my package isn't where it should be

Three days later, and my visa application has been marked as delivered!

So for anyone else who may be worried about their visa application not being delivered... just be patient!

Now I just need to stick this on loop for the next four months, and I think I'll be okay...
