NZ PhD Student Visa, 5 Month Processing time

hello frndz. I have applied for student visa for Phd. My application sent to wellington on 5th April . I submitted all the proofs of funds and other documents. due to some reason I already took extension of 3 months because of IELTS . Now my start date is 1 may. If it is possible that I can get visa before my start date or I can get further extension ???? I am really worried.
 
Hello mannu 1729,
By looking at previous discussions, it varies from 2.5 months to 7-8 months, I am also waiting since last 3 and half months
If university will give me further extension. I was supposing standard time frame (25 days) which is for other student visa processing. So I mentioned my start date 1 may.

I think your university will extend the date, as they also know getting phd students visa from India, Pakistan, Iran etc can take long time. which university are you going to join??

Wao great. This means you can expect your visa by may end or June start as verification will take maximum one month or so. Best of luck

Try to send by email or by upload in your online account. As sending by post will take time and wastage of money as well. Similarly delay of response expected when you send by post. But while uploading or sending documents by email, get documents notarized and scan it to send

I sent notarized scanned copies. Now I have to take extension from university. should I take extension upto 1 july or 1 august. ?
 
"Your application is currently in our actionable queue and will be further assessed by one of our case officers in the upcoming week, you should expect an update on or before 30/04/2016" I got this mail from INZ.
Actually, what is meant by an actionable queue? Is it for third party verification?

I am Pakistani citizen, I have received an offer of PhD (Computer Science) admission at Auckland University of Technology. The Expiry date of admission offer was 30th April, but I have deferred it until 25th July 2016.
2. I have applied for VISA on 22nd April through "Licensed Immigration Adviser"/"NZ Recognized Agent" for the Visa Process.
Remember the mentioned advisor/agent was referred by the university i.e., AUT.

3. I got acknowledgment email from onlineservices@dol.govt.nz on 9th May 2016, in that email my Client Number and PIN Number was mentioned. After that, yet I did not receive any email.

4. I don't have any scholarship.
5. My father will sponsor my entire study.
6. He had a good business, its proof is uploaded.
7. On his name, there is a land-property of worth 400,000USD, its proof is also uploaded.
8. Currently, our bank statements show 21000USD, its source of income has uploaded.
9. I am employed in a reputed post-graduated institute since 2008 till date. Salary slips, employment certificate etc are uploaded.
10. I am married, its proof is also uploaded.

My Visa advisor/consultant wrote if my applicate moves to IPB NZ then processing time will not be predicated and additional documents may be required.

Note. I have provided almost all documents discussed in the previous posts of this forum. The prepartion of these documents took almost 3 months.

Could you please answer of the following questions,
1. What percent of chances that I will get VSA?
2. Why did I not receive an email that my application moved to IPB yet? (because from previous posts, I concluded that VISA application moves to IPB within one month)
3. In how much time it is expected that I will receive a decision of YES/NO?
Etc Etc.

Please help.
