    12 Jan 2016 - Essential Skills
    12 May 2016 - Onshore Partnership-based temporary work visa application. DECLINED on July 2016 - living together requirements due to different work places.
    30 May 2016 - Resigned from my job to be reunited with my wife.
    15 Jul 2016 - Onshore Partnership-based temporary work visa application. DECLINED on September 2016 - resident partner's ineligibility to sponsor.
    Requested for Reconsideration - DECLINED.
    Essenitial Skills Visa invalidated/cancelled!
    Looking for job elsewhere to re-apply for another Essential Skills Visa. Gathering documents for a potential hiring. Job advertisement posted by future employer to meet INZ's requirements.
    30 Oct 2016 - DEPORTATION LIABILITY NOTICE/DLN received in letterbox. Few days later, we hired an Immigration Lawyer.
    Within 28 days, our lawyer requested INZ a REVIEW to withdraw DLN - DECLINED.
    Within 48 days, our lawyer represented us for an appeal on humanitarian grounds to Immigration Protection Tribunal.
    12 Jan 2017 - Essential Skills Visa expired. The day before, our lawyer requested for a visa under Section61 of the Immigration Act - DECLINED.
    24 Jan 2017 - IPT's appeal DECLINED Failed.
    07 Feb 2017 - With heavy broken hearts. I voluntarily left NZ without receiving a LETTER OF DEPORTATION FROM INZ. My wife and I shattered! Almost $15,000 fees to INZ and Lawyer gone to waste.
    03 Jul 2017 - Re-applied for another Essential Skills Visa to return to NZ and be closer to my wife - DECLINED.
    Letter stated - I AM DEEMED DEPORTED AND BARRED FROM RETURNING TO NZ FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS until 2022.
    Aug 2018 - My wife wrote a one page letter to the Immigration Minister on a personal note/level requesting to cancel my 5-Year Prohibition of entry to NZ.
    Oct 2018 - I lodged an application with INZ for a Ministerial Intervention.
    18 Dec 2018 - The Minister of Immigration Delegate wrote back to my wife CANCELLING MY 5-YEAR BAN and INVITING ME TO APPLY for a Partnership Work Visa within 3 months.
    20 Dec 2018 - I withdrawn my application for MI.
    15 March 2019 - 1st Partnership Work Visa issued.
    15 Nov 2019 - Residence Partnership application Onshore.
    15 March 2020 - 2nd Partnership Work Visa issued.
    12 Aug 2020 - CO Allocated.
    16 Oct 2020 - First contact with CO requesting further documents.
    21 Oct 2020 - Documents shipped to INZ.
    01 Nov 2020 - Signed off to 2PC/Quality Check.
    16 Nov 2020 - INZ online account APPROVED in principle.
    01 Dec 2020 - Resident E-Visa issued.

    Sorry for an essay type TIMELINE. This has been our struggle with INZ. LESSON: If anyone of you here is awaiting a decision on your application, PLEASE reflect on how my wife and I went through this excruciating painful experience with INZ. In the end, at last, I can now call NZ my home and FINALLY RE-UNITED with my family FOREVER. Special thanks to JandM. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!!!!

    ----Resident Since 01 Dec 2020-------

    OMG!!! I can't even imagine how difficult that process was for you and for you wife!

    I am sooo pleased you got it sorted in the end!
