Hi guys, my student visa application was sent on 8th of October, I received an email today from my INZ in Bangkok through my immigration consultant that an initial assessment of my application had been completed that my health result would be sent to Health Assessment Team in Wellington for further review due to abnormalities in my report and that could that about 6 weeks to receive a response. Can anyone advice me the implication of this on my application? I was not informed if my application has been assigned to a Case Officer, please advice me on this. Thanks.

Hi Vaidyaraj,

Once your application is reviewed in Immi NZ Mumbai. It will be sent to Wellington for further processing and your passport will be sent back to you before your application sent to Immigration profiling branch (IPB) in wellington. You need to wait a little until case officer allotment for your visa application. You will be notified once case officer consider your visa application. You will be asked to send "Additional information document" to IPB with other documents if required. I hope you have submitted PCC with your visa application issued by your regional passport office?. Minimum time you can expect in this process is 2 and a half months and at max it can take upto 10-12 months depending on managed queue.

Regards,
Rahul
 
Can anyone suggest how long does it take to get the visa stamped after approval? My passport is with INZ mumbai
Hi Diadoran,

If your visa is approved and you have received visa approval letter from your visa/case officer then you need to send your passport to Immi NZ Mumbai for visa endorsement on passport. It will hardly take 3-4 days depending on queue.

Rahul
