Question Skilled migrant visa application sent in....hearing back from Immigration?

Hi there,

I am currently now in New Zealand on a work to residence visa. I have applied for my skilled migrant visa-got invited to apply-I sent off all my paperwork, and via tracking I can see was received 2 days ago. I am just wondering what happens? Do Immigration get in touch fairly quick? Do they cash the payment quite quickly? And acknowledge they have received the application?

Thanks a lot!

Took me 2.5 months to get assigned to a case officer, yep they take the money as soon as they have the documents. Sit tight it will be ticking away

Ok thank you. I am just a bit worried as my payment still hasn't been cashed yet, and they have had the documents now for 1 week. Do you think everything is ok?

Are you now in NZ?!
