    Default On Shore Partnership Residence Application.

    Hi Good Evening all

    I just got update for my Wife's Partnership Application below is Time line

    Did Application online Oct 9th, 2020
    Money deducted same Day
    Case officer assigned on 25th Jan 2020 and asked for updated Documents by 9th of Feb.
    Submitted all document on 8th Feb 2020.
    Got a mail from Case officer advising application gone to 2pc on 11 Feb.
    Again got a mail from Case officer advising for Interview and time availability for interview, done interview on 23 Feb and got Email below i am bit confused that what Case officer is trying to say can some one please help me on this

    "In regards to your clientÂ’s interview as your client and their partner were living together at the time the supporting partner was granted residence under the Skilled Migrant Category, your client will be required to meet English Language requirements, as set out below. I understand that these tests can take some preparation and time to organize, you will have 6 months to provide this to Immigration once a second person check is completed; only once English Language requirements are met, may you be issued your residence visa."

    My question is, is case officer approved residency in condition ? is she just waiting for English test.

    Can some one please help me on this, your help will be Much appreciated.

    This sounds to me that, should your application be successful, you will be issued an Approved in Principle letter, which will give you six months to submit satisfactory proof of English proficiency. The Resident Visa would then only be granted when you have met all requirements in the Approved in Principle letter, and failing to do this will, unless there is good reason, result in the application being declined.

    Hi kelerei Good evening

    First of all thanks for your reply, the thing is that we have received this last email from Case officer on 9th March after that no communication as CO again sent my wife file to 2pc as described above.

    Also my wife Work Visa is Finishing on 9th April and we have booked her English test Exam on 29 March so situation is cut to cut should we apply another Work visa? or we can submit test results after exam and ask CO to process quickly.

    You must apply for a further Work Visa if it will expire before you are granted a Resident Visa (this allows an Interim Visa to happen). Consider the length of time to get English test results, the possibility of the English test result not meeting the required threshold, time for the quality check to conclude and time for the Resident Visa to be issued once you act on any Approved in Principle letter (usually around 2 weeks, though less than this in my experience) when considering whether you should apply for a further Work Visa.

    You cannot be granted a Resident Visa if you become unlawfully in New Zealand, and you will have to request a visa as a special case under Section 61, leave New Zealand, or face deportation.

    I know it must be frustrating when it seems residence is so close, but as Kelerei said, your wife needs to have a new work visa application in so as to have the remaining formalities and processing time covered.
