    Did you get in touch with NZ Police to get the '3 month' timeframe corroborated? Doesn't sound like INZ is being honest to me.......

    I had similar situation last week when my CO said they just requested NSC a couple weeks ago and it would take up to six months. I was struggling with this uncertainty but eventually changed my mind set and prepared to apply another work visa for a long wait.
    The day after they said they have received NSC result turning it to green light again . So maybe I am lucky but same thing could happen to you. Their timeframe looks bit conservative to me. I think you can let your CO know your current visa status and see what they can do or suggest.

    Having said that, you probably should think about sorting your next visa or extension soon.

    I try not to compare my case to others because everyone' situation is very different. After all a positive outcome is what we all really want.

    I have contacted New Zealand Police and am awaiting their response.

    I'm on a partner of a worker work visa and am eligible for an automatic 6 months extension which was announced 2 months ago. So it's something INZ has to sort again, not me. I've raised it on Friday to a support officer that I did not receive the extension yet, and he confirmed that I was eligible and he was going to put a note on my file to get it sorted.

    Just to be aware: INZ has an internal issue and they are manually having to sort the "automatic" extensions. My partner cannot work because he was due to be extended on 25 September - and it still isn't done. My CO won't work on my application further (and yet, kind of is - requested info from ACRO) because technically he's here illegally.

    It has been one hell of a week...
