    Mine is routinely emailing me after 6pm. She waited until 5pm to do my interview to avoid interfering with work, I was happy to take an hour and a half off to talk to her if she'd called earlier 😂

    I get the feeling whilst at level 2 they might be operating shifts to reduce staff numbers in the office. I've had no early emails from her at all and get most of my Comms after 5pm, the earliest emails we've had is mod afternoon.

    We are in 2pc for the second time now, they weren't satisfied she'd done her homework about my role so had to have the interview and submit some examples of my work (this was more voluntarily to prove my point and make it easier for her to understand). The interview isn't too bad, it's just incredibly difficult to explain an entire industry, then what our company does and where I fit in to someone who knows absolutely nothing about any of it. People I work next to often have no idea what my role is so it was incredibly hard to get my points over in a way she could understand.

    Residency Approved!!

    Thank you to everyone here for keeping me sane. I haven’t posted much but have been reading this forum since we began this journey many years ago. It seemed that every time we thought we were getting close they changed the rules..... we ended up coming here in March 2017 on an Essential Skills Visa and had a VOC in Jan 2020.

    From INZ website:

    As of 22 September 2020, INZ is allocating:

    non-prioritised SMC and Residence from Work applications received in March 2019, and
    prioritised SMC and Residence from Work applications within 2 weeks of the application joining the priority queue.

    When currently logging into my immigration services account, where I can see my applications, I'm currently redirected to the following message after logging in. Does everyone see this or is something happening to my account? I've never seen this the past 3 years and now my application is with a case officer I'm seeing this. Trying to make links but it's probably a technical issue from their side xD
