Hi - just been approved for an Essential skills Work Visa. My wife’s partner application (submitted in a group application) hasn’t been assigned to a CO yet.

My visa has a ‘must enter before’ date which is three months away. We were planning on moving across, after our house is sold, in around 3-5 months.

Am I now stuffed and need to massively change my plans or can a I request a longer entry timeframe from INZ?
