    Default Time between Online status changed and E-visa (residency)

    Hi guys! My online status has just changed to APPROVED woohoo!
    So I guess it is time to party!
    But my question is how long did it take between your online status change and the E-visa if you got your residency approved in the last couple of months? Particularly interested in the Hamilton branch! I know it took 4-6 weeks between the status and the AIP before but I guess the process would have been different now with the E-visas?

    I understand that with INZ you can't predict things but I'm gonna start my application process for uni so I need at least to have some sort of Idea and try to convince them to accept my application

    Thanks, that's a big relief! Hopefully the E-visa not too far away as I can't really do much without it!

    Just an update: my e-visa came through 2 hours after my online status has changed to approved. Officially relieved

    Thanks! After 7 years and 11 temporary visas, it's such a relief! I have already sorted so much admin since this morning: enrolled in university, enrolled to vote, applied for an Amex, updated my employer etc.
    Super stocked!

    Thanks krp!

    My timeline (when everything that could go wrong goes wrong!)
    Application Dropped at Akl Central branch: 7 March
    Application lodged in Manukau, money deducted, National security check initiated: 13 April
    CO assigned (introduced, no docs required): 16 May
    A new CO assigned: mid-September
    NSC completed: Mid-November (7,5 months)
    Application transferred to Hamilton branch around mid-Nov, got an email saying the wait for the new CO is 2-3 month - the same day as NSC completion (whaaat?!)
    Contacted the second CO and he took my application to Management - application was allocated to the new CO the next day.
    3 December: CO requested updated proof of relationship and a new birth certificate translation
    3 December: Sent docs
    4 December: sent a new birth certificate translation
    5 December: Application finalised by CO and sent to 2pc
    30 January: online status changed to approved
    30 January: received the letter with e-visa and immigration status changed to resident 2 hours later

    On other hand- i see in other threads, if we leave blanks on the application
    Is it likely to be sent back to us ?
    I am not sure whether i left blanks
    I cannot remember
    Fingers crossed
