    Default Aip has been given, but status is still waiting for approval.

    Hi, when we checked our pr application under skilled migrant visa, we got to know status is waiting for previous employment verification.
    But when we contacted our case manager, we got to know that aip has been approved.
    I am really anxious to know how long it will take to stamp our passports.

    Thanks

    Online status is very often out of step with what has really happened in the office. (Updating is of secondary importance.)

    You can't know how long it will be before your passports are returned with the visa label in. Once the CO has added your name to show this can be done, they are sent to a different department, which deals with cases from a whole group of COs, and they join a date-order queue. You have probably heard that there has been a big backlog of cases at INZ over the last several months, so the waiting time at each stage is longer than has been normal. There are people on the forum who have had their AIP email four or more weeks ago, and they are still waiting for their passports.
