    Default Allocated and unallocated cases for skilled migrants

    Does anybody have any idea about these tables? Also, how long does it take for cases to get officer and do then email us as soon as being allocated?

    https://www.immigration.govt.nz/docu...eral-queue.pdf

    What about this table what does that mean? It means from 14 august we have 384 cases without officer? And what could be the reasons?

    Finally, is 5 or 6 months written in application approval time real?!

    Those statistics are for applications that have not yet been allocated to an Immigration Officer. Applications are placed in a general date-order queue, and allocated to an Immigration Officer when they reach the front of the queue, although some applications may receive priority processing. This is all explained to you in the second of your two links. Your question "how long does it take for cases to get officer" is also answered in the second of your two links. Please read your links before asking questions based on them in future.

    You will not necessarily be contacted when your application is allocated to an Immigration Officer for processing. You will be contacted if the Immigration Officer has any questions pertaining to your application or requires further information, otherwise you will only be contacted to inform you of the outcome when a decision is made.

    You are correct in that 90% of applications are currently processed in 6 months. However, this is a rolling average and fluctuates over time: it is possible that processing times may be shorter or longer in future, for a variety of reasons (and one important reason will be the forthcoming change in the Skilled Migrant Category points criteria). You should also remember that your application, depending on your unique circumstances, may be amongst the 10% of applications that take far longer.

    Thanks. Please do not talk bout those 10%
    By the way, do you have any idea for assigning people to national security check and the difference between people who have been here for say 1 year and did not exit the country with those say have been 5 years here and enter/exit several times? As due to our nationality I believe they did security check for the visa previous and this year (my partner is a phd student got visa on middle 2022 and I partner work visa this year march).
    Do you think living in different countries make the process more complex?! ot it is good that we have say EU temporary resident permit and live in other countries at least for a few months
