    Default Processing Time Frame for Residency from Work (Skilled Migrant Category)

    Hi Motherbear.

    This is Mohammad, Indian, IT Network Administrator (Masters in Computer Sciences) living in Auckland. FYI, I came to New Zealand on Work To Residence Visa in Aug 2011. I found the job in IT (ICT) as Technical Support Engineer (DC Technician) in one of the famous & top 5 companies of NEW ZEALAND. I started my job in first week of Feb 2012 and submitted my Cover Letter, Employment Agreement/Contract, Job Description and Original Passport in Manukau Branch. After 2 weeks i was informed that, i have been assigned an Immigration Officer and my Residence Application is in Henderson Branch.

    Do you have any idea, how long the process takes and when can i know the result, just rough idea?

    The processing times given for Auckland are a bit vague but it might give you some idea.

    Default HI

    Hi Motherbear,

    Thanks for your reply. But there is nothing mentioned, if someone comes on WTR, founds job in his/her field and sumbits the required documents (Cover Letter, Offer Letter, Contract, Job Desc, Passport) to INZ (Henderson) branch for further processing of the Residence from work application. Fingers crossed.
