    That's interesting they wanted the physical passport up front - I remember for the residency application they wanted passports LAST after approval in principal.

    No, that's because he submitted neither the original passport nor a certified copy initially, and hence he failed to meet the mandatory requirements for the application to be lodged. Just like the application for the original Resident Visa, one can apply with a certified copy of the passport, but INZ has discretion to request the original passport should they deem it necessary.

    Compare R2.40 (mandatory requirements for lodging an application for most residence class visas) with RV1.10.10 (mandatory requirements for lodging an application for a Permanent Resident Visa). There are fewer mandatory requirements for lodging the Permanent Resident Visa application, but note that the passport requirements are identical.
