    June 5, 2020 - Received email from CO asking for latest joint account details and statements. Also asked why I went outside NZ for 2 weeks without my partner.
    June 7, 2020 - Uploaded documents and explanation.
    July 10, 2020 - CO called me to check if we uploaded the police certificate of my partner. Co also called landlord and friends to verify letters. CO just asked them if they know me and my partner.
    July 20, 2020 - Status Changed to Approved
    July 21, 2020 - Received the E-visa
    Congratulations!!!!!! Will never have to worry about visas hey (except for the one 2 years from now) 😉

    Regarding CO called your friends to verify letters. Did they just say ďhello Iím calling from IMMI NZ and do you know A and BĒ and then thatís it. Hang up the call ?!?!?

    Thank you ParengHilton 👍

    I can understand that you're feeling uncomfortable about it. In your place, I would phone INZ and say that you're worried because of the expiry date of her work visa.
    Thanks JandM,
    We had a chat with INZ yesterday and they told us that we need to apply for a work visa as they don't know how long it's gonna take to issue a residency e-visa. we called INZ 2 times and got the same answer.
    It's really annoying to spend $635 again on work visa when you got a residency. We can apply for a work visa but it's not worth to apply for a visa again as we can get the residency e-visa any day.
    Anyone here know the time frame between the AIP letter and e-visa issued?

    Thanks heaps

    Update on our application..CO called today to let us know they've received all the information we submitted and that it looks good but now they are just waiting for a "Third party check" from the home country which is done by a team in NZ. Said it can take up to 6 months and that if it does I might have upload more relationship evidence as they require evidence to be no more than 3 months old

    Just wondering, what could they mean by a third party check for a partner resident visa? I read somewhere on this forum that third party check can be to check work history etc but that was for SMC visa

    Also is anyone else being told the same thing about a third party check? The country of origin is Pakistan (high risk country)

    Any input would be highly appreciated

    This is pure speculation on my part, but it may be the National Security Check. If you were requested to fill out the INZ 1209 form at any point during your application, it could well be this -- previous posters on this forum who have gone through this have indicated that it does involve checking with relevant authorities in your home country, and it can take 6 (or more!) months to complete depending on how quickly said authorities respond to INZ.

    Here is an old post explaining what the NSC is for. https://www.enz.org/forum/showthread...848#post495848
    And here is a thread covering various details about it. https://www.enz.org/forum/showthread.php?t=43853

    So all 3 previous visas my partner has applied for they have done an NSC but we've never been asked to fill out the 1209 form. We know they have done NSC because we requested the immigration file after each visa which has the date for when NSC was requested by the CO and when it was received. Every time they did NSC in the past it took around a week based on the dates on the file..

    We also thought NSC took months based on other threads here but it never did for us. I wonder how long it will take this time. I will keep updating on here :

    all very interesting was goes on behind the scenes.

    Applied 23rd February on-shore.
    CO allocated 7th August.
    So far just stated to ensure I have enough photos and evidence likes bills attached to my application.

    They seem to be going very quickly at allocation so fingers crossed!
