Fully agree. I think that 80 it is so small nuber and then they may easyly make quota wider. Also I think that high manager who should take responsiblity on that situation just do not know that that happened. Because I think that low-level manager trying to hush up the problem. So we have to write a public letter to NZ Minister of Immigration.

I think that 'automatic' apologies are not enough.

I have already received email about refund. Damn!!!! What should I do next ?

Re: Your Silver Fern Application Fee refund

Refund arrangements for your Silver Fern Job Search visa application fee were made on Tuesday 8 May 2012 (New Zealand time). Your refund will appear on your credit card on Wednesday 9 May 2012 (New Zealand time).

Some of you may have recently received an automated message saying that your application has been accepted by a designated Immigration New Zealand branch. This email was sent because, at that time, we had not had a chance to process the refund of the fee you paid and close the application in our system. We apologise for the confusion this email may have caused to some of you.

Once again, we are very sorry about the error that caused your application to be incorrectly accepted and for any distress and confusion this has caused.

400 - Timed out before payment.
80 - Accepted in Error.
300 - Accepted.

They may have refunded the money to try and get rid of us but don't stop here, keep pursuing them until they come up with a fair compensation.
Among these 80 applicants we have a good number of applicants gathered on the forum and I must say the count is increasing as silent visitors are getting registered too…
we just need to figure out and agree on a way we all should follow now that can lead us to some better situation ..
So what’s the line of action now…

I put an online complaint to the office of ombudsmen and emailed the Minister of immigration letting him know that there seems to be worldwide confusion and people's futures are literally hanging in the balance! If and when either of these reply, I will let u know!

this is mental trauma for some one who is waiting since months after they moved their dates...
this is not fair...now there has to be action by all who got the similar situation...else department wont understand deceiving people like this..
Could we join together to generate joint force ?

I would agree with this.

Also I do think it odd that some of you are receiving more information that others via email.


Personally speaking and it is just a personal view. If it is 80 applicants only then no skin off NZIS nose to let those 80 through. After all all those on the SV visa have to pay money and evidence support for their keep whilst here in NZ. They all , also, have to go through the ring of fire that is trying to gain a substantial job offer in times when job offers can be very hard to come by.

If those that got through are willing to risk all ,then it is what is called a 'cash cow' for New Zealand as an extra 80 are willing to pay into the economy in the hope of finding that all important job offer.

Please note that some of those from 2011 SV last year have struggled to find a suitable job offer and so may not be able to stay.

Well two options really, you can continue crying in your beer or keep pursuing them until they come up with a fair compensation and revamp their system so such ridiculous technical errors will not occur again in the near future.
