New to forum but hope to get some advice. Submitted residence application through Residence from Work category. Currently on Talent Accredited Employer work visa. Since i am already in NZ over 2 years now, i wonder why NSC check is still required? Frustrating thing is that the application is now pending NSC. Read elsewhere in the forum that this can be a long process thats takes up to years. Anything to share noting that I am not on SMC and apparently residence from work is suppose to be quicker - 3 months on inz website.
