    PR visas (only available after you've been a resident for at least two years) normally only take a week or two.

    I guess you are interested in applications for Residence under SMC.

    @wiseguy: i got selected on April 13, 2016 then got my ITA on the 19th of April. I submitted my application on 26th of April and a case office was assigned on the 2nd of June and a few additional docs were asked and also they sent a questionnaire to my employer. i think im just waiting for approval.

    i am not sure if the case will be the same to you because I am already in NZ.

    INZ often move cases to a different office if one happens to have had less applications, all in the interests of getting the processing done asap.

    @jamesmj You have been very lucky. I submitted my application on 26th April and still waiting for a CO to be allocated. Almost 2 months now.
