It is just peoples opinions however it does feel that it IS the way it works!
It's not opinion... no matter how much you want it to be. I suggest that you, yourself, are the one offering the unrealistic opinion.

Wow, I can't quite believe our luck. It's seems that applying from NZ is different than applying from UK. We got an emailing today advising that the passport is being sent back to us already and the online check says issued. Just 9 days after interview! The consulate officer advised up to 2 months so I was very pleasantly surprised when I opened that email today. Can now get excited about our trip to Disneyland in September that we booked and paid for without knowing about the need for a visa due to criminal record. Was stressing out majorly when we found that out and have lost many nights sleep over it. Happy little kiwi today

Passport arrived with visa today, exactly 10 days since interview and recommendation for waiver. 10 years, multiple entries. Maybe you UK people should come to NZ to apply

You have been issued with a regular visa and obviously didn't require a waiver of ineligibility. That's why your case has been handled in such a short timeframe.

My husband was told at his interview that he would need a waiver due to committing a crime involving moral turpitude. The consulate officer applied for the waiver for him at the interview and he came home with a blue form that explained that they couldn't issue the visa and that it need further administrative processing / waiver of ineligibility. He was advised that it could take up to 2 months.

How do you know no waiver is annoted on the visa?

Yes, I wondered this too? It doesn't say anything about a waiver on the visa, does it usually if it had a waiver? I'm a bit confused now as he was told and had applied for a waiver of ineligibility but as it's come through so quickly and with a 10 year, multi entry I'm wondering if the consulate office changed his mind after hubby left the interview and just granted him the visa? Does this even happen. Not that I'm complaining at all but just interested to know how he got it so quickly

I am pretty sure that the waiver is noted on the visa from what I have read. I don't believe that they have the discretion to 'change their minds' in regard to visa eligibility given that they are bound by law. The only thing they can decide is whether or not to recommend a waiver if one is required. I think it's more likely that the consulate officer got it wrong and realised (or was told) that the waiver wasn't required after your husband left

The waiver queue is a worldwide queue so I while I can appreciate that everyone has different timeframes, 10 days seems way too quick when the average wait is 5 months.

Congrats on getting the visa though. My husband just passed week 23 but we aren't planning on going until April next year so plenty of time.
