    Default Long wait for business visa applicants

    I'm curious if anyone can share any information on number of LTBV applicants. My application was processed April 8 and as of yesterday still hadn't been assigned to an agent for review. I have asked but haven't received any information other than they have received a record number of applicants! Anyone else in the waiting game on a business visa? Guess many other people are seeing the business potential of New Zealand!

    Awesome news! Did they call to ask questions, research anything, etc. prior to granting your visa or did they just notify you? Do you mind sharing more details about your business for the ltbv? Thanks! Can't wait to here the same news!!!!

    No questions of any kind. Just received an email saying it was approved.
    I think I've done a good job in fulfilling the criteria.
    I proved that I have the funds and where they came from (selling of my prior business).
    I proved that I can mantain myself without relying on business profits.
    I made a business plan according to current industry benchmarks. As a benefit I proposed the creation of 2 new employments at the end of the 2nd year.
    I have experience in retail business (13 years of setting an owning one) though I don't have experience in online retailing (proposed venture)

    Hope that clarifies some of your doubts.
    But I can tell you that the path is full of them. You just have to take the plunge.

    Thanks! Sounds very similar to our situation. They received our app April 8 so maybe by October/November we will hear. Thanks for sharing your experience and best of luck!

    Did you do all filings yourself or used some lawyer/agent?
