    Default Residency Verbally Approved!

    Thought I should introduce myself. Currently living in the UK with my husband (NZ citizen) and our 19 month old son. We applied last week for PR and have just had a call to sy it has been approved. Quite surprised that it took only 7 days when we expected to wait months! (I also had a problem with my medical so expected big delays!)
    Very excited but anxious about how much work we have to do to get ourselves over to NZ.
    Has anyone else been approved this quickly?

    Wow, that IS fast! I don't think anyone else has ever received confirmation of PR that quick before!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    I'm a pretty optimisitic person, but with my current experience with the Department of Immigration, I would not believe my applications have been approved until I get it in writing. I do hope this is really happening for you; gives the rest of us who are waiting some hope that maybe it won't take up to a year.
    Arrived in Auckland on August 6, 2008.Now live in Kawakawa with my kiwi partner.
    I just started working at Bay of Islands Hospital at the beginning of December 2009.
    Work permit renewed and good until June 2010
    EOI submitted and selected, case manager assigned and ITA received. PR application submitted 28/08/09
    approved in principle 26/01/10, PR granted and received 19/03/10

    Just a quick note to say that I have received confirmation from NZIS in writing today so it really only took a few days. I guess the London NZIS office is really quiet at the moment...worth knowing if you are about to apply!

    Irony is we are not able to go to NZ for a while as we are still trying to save enough money for house deposit!
