Default Is no news, good news

I submitted my EOI, way back in November with 135 pts (No job offer) and got selected straight away. Great i thought... However in February they questioned my qualifications... However got that sorted through the NZQA who actually quoted my qual at level 6 and not 5... Since then i've heard nothing... even emailed my case office and still nothing... So is no news good news? Does the longer i wait mean they have less to find fault with my application or am i being to optimistic? I am however now activily seeking employment having got some of my affairs in order. I just wanna know...................

From what I remember (and I'm sure I'm in the early stages of alzheimers) I got my ITA pretty quickly after being selected from the pool. I did however have quite a lengthy wait until I actually got my residency. But once I got a job offer it went through within about 2 weeks! Hope that helps?

Sould i contact them to see what's happening as it's nearly five months since my EOI was selected. I'd have though they'd have made a decision one way or the other by now? Or maybe i'm just being too hasty..........

I can understand your concerns, as we were selected from the pool on 15th March ( I know not as long as you! ) and I am starting to get a little jittery because I have read through various posts and some people seem to receive their ITA's quite quickly!

But keep your chin up and try not to worry too much !

Give them a call!!! It does seem a long time. Just ask them politely and let them know you're eager to start contributing to the economics of NZ, that should impress them!
Good luck

Default Re: Is no news, good news

look at my time line. 3 months from EOI accepted to ITA being sent. We submitted our visa application 22nd jan. with no job offer.
We received a letter questioning hubbys angiogram results (we said they were normal on medical, panel Dr said it was ok, so we had to ask Consultant to write a letter saying hubby had a normal heart, with no predicted heart attack any time soon, we sent that off yesterday) so now waiting for a case officer to be assigned... assuming that the visa officer who wrote to us isn't our CO.?
I predict it will happen after our recce ( would have been nice to have visa already in passport to validate) so fingers crossed this trip on Sunday to NZ isn't a waste of time and money and we find a location we like and a poss. job.
good luck to you, hope hear soon.
Helen
