Also, an immigration officer may also request further police certificates within the 12-month period if there is good reason to do so. See A5.10.
    • There are circumstances, documented at A4.20, where a further medical certificate might be requested.

    Thanks Kelerei

    If the applicant hasn't left New Zealand since application submitted, asking for new Police Certificate doesn't make sense.

    Exactly. Just makes no sense.

    Any movement in the queue? And when are they going to announce new quotas? Any official word on that?

    But when they take over a year to look at things a lot of people will have left the country. We try to get away at least once a year, it's only for a couple of weeks but they don't know for sure where we went or what we did.

    We are choosing to not care anymore, we've resigned ourselves that if it goes tits up it goes tits up but we aren't letting it ruin our lives. It's hard not to be pessimistic about the whole situation but while they still don't have an official 2020 quota to work with I don't see anything happening anytime soon, even then I don't think much will happen as the backlog now outweighs the likely quota.

    It does seem likely (just my opinion) that the backlog of 35000 will take up much, if not all of the quota for 2020, and SMC could then be capped/stopped for a while.

    Unfortunately, SMC has the best public perception for being capped.

    "When demand is too high, the choice to limit residence numbers becomes: whether to cap demand-driven policies (eg limit the number of partners and children of New Zealanders allowed each year), reduce or cut already capped policies (eg Parent, Pacific categories), or reduce numbers of skilled migrants. The latter is usually considered the least sensitive in terms of public perception and the easiest by which to manage change. The Skilled Migrant Category point system (including the adjustable selection level) gives the category a level of flexibility to purposefully increase or reduce its numbers."

    Better to stay away from our own assumptions which may give more stress...

    They will cut a lot of money then. Imagine 30,000 *$3000 per SMC application will be lost.....it will be just sow like that

    Well,
    Realistically, to keep a fine balance in all segments of society and for the sake of economic growth, NZ govt will have to continue with immigration. Cutting immigration will hobble it’s economic growth which no govt cannot afford.

    If you study , US, UK, Canada or AU immigration model, immigrants are the major contributor in the development of these countries. It’s widely accepted that two-thirds of 4 big economies growth are directly attributable to migration. NZ govt and INZ shall also not forget the wider, long-term benefits of immigration, in particular the disproportionate contributions skilled migrants make to innovation and wealth creation. We all know, immigrants are twice as likely as Kiwi-born individuals to start their own business and earn more revenues for the state in addition to creation of jobs and so on and much more....

    I believe, Govt and INZ cannot continue with the same state of affairs, and sooner than later, they ll have to come up with an unprecedented move to tackle SMC visa along-with its backlog. I am foreseeing positive announcement any time in the next couple of weeks, so folks, let’s remain positive—————-
