    Thanks for the relevant information.
    However, I have got some extension on my start date.
    The recent update is that my application has been assigned to a case officer on 30/10/2017 and I am still waiting for a decision.
    Hope to receive a response from the CO sooner.
    Fingers crossed!

    Hello all

    I have also applied for student visa for New Zealand. I also have fully funded scholarship. My case has been under NSC since 15 Sep, 2017. I have not got any update on it till now. Whenever i ask my visa officer about it, he tells me that it is still under process without telling me how much more time it will take.

    I think for Pakistani applicant, NSC is a very lengthy process. Waiting for an outcome soon.

    Fingers crossed

    It has been 5 months since i have applied for the student visa and still waiting. I am getting regular emails from CO that NSC is still under process.

    Is there anyone here whose visa has been granted in near past?

    @KhurramMunawar and Neela

    Any updates on your visa application?

    Mine is still stuck at NSC. It seems that everything has been frozen at this point.

    Waiting for your replies.
