    Default sponsoring a friend to nz

    hi all,

    just needing abit of help here, i have a friend that is wanting to visit me from lebanon, i was over there last year visiting him and now he would like to visit NZ, he has already submitted his papers and i am his sponsor, he is only wanting to come to NZ for 1 month and has a job to return to in Lebanon (hes a nurse). Already its been 3 weeks and no reply, im just abit unnerved about the whole process as i know its difficult for lebanese to get visas and he hasnt travelled out of lebanon before, any advice would be much appreciated.

    I would hope INZ would let you know quite quickly if there was a problem.
