Last contact was 31st July to say he was about to recommend a decision to quality control but something was missing. I sent a certified copy immediately, tracked it, and when I knew it had been delivered I emailed to ask him to confirm receipt.....I have not heard back.

    Copying his manager into the emails seemed to generate a more prompt response ����
    Hi happypeeps,

    Is this correct that you've been allocated to a CO since October last year? that is terrible but you're almost there and hoping soon you will have an approval too. I'm a November applicant but as per JandM said that each application is unique and maybe that depends on the CO's work habits or complexity. So like yours and Evanamy I am expecting 1 year or more for my application.

    Good luck happypeeps!

    Heard Egoodhue being quoted on the radio yesterday morning - she was talking about a South African family that had been waiting very long if I remember correctly.

    I went to Wellington for a road trip early this early, gone to the parliament 'beehives' for a tour.
    The guide said New Zealand pride itself for its transparent government.
    Looking back, i was wondering if she was using " ".
    Lol

    Hi there, yes that is correct September 2018. We have only ever been asked to provide further information once, in November 2018, which we submitted by the end of that month. I can only assume it has taken him a long time to gather information from others, regarding work experience, job offer etc.

    I sent a copy of my new passport but still do not have confirmation from him of receipt of it. They definitely arrived at INZ 12/08/2019. Hopefully he is just busy working on everyone else applications!

    Good luck to you too!

    That's normal - the CO does not have to keep you or your lawyer informed of everything she does while processing your application. She will contact your representative if she requires more information or explanation, or has something to tell you.

    Hi, I submitted our SMC paper application last week 30/08/19 and haven't got any response from INZ yet. I was wondering where you guys get info about application status online? Thank you.

    The last thing I saw about this, within the last few days, was somebody posting that the page where people HAD been looking for status had a banner up saying the service was no longer available. Nobody got to see much of recent times, anyway... there would just be the name of the visa applied for, and before any decision was made, all it said was "Pending" while the application was being processed.

    This is true. I can no longer see any status. Itís a bit sad. I used to like checking - it made me feel a little connected to the process. Iím sad they took it down. :-(
