    Default Impact on residence application

    MotherBear,

    We are currently processing our NZ Residence visa, and our case officer has just been assigned in the India processing branch. It will take a year before the decision will be made.

    It has been close to 1.5 years after which a CO got allocated.Meanwhile we are applying for a H1b(work visa-valid for 3 yrs) to the US.It will be granted in another 4-6 months

    Does this affect our chances of being successful for NZ residence?Please let us know the possible impacts that we might face.

    Thanks!
    Ramya

    That seems a long time to wait. I honestly don't know if applying for work visas in the US would affect your NZ application and whether INZ would even know if you are granted them. No doubt, if you moved to the US, you would have to let INZ in India know that you have shifted countries and they may want to send your file to INZ in the US. This may bring up questions about your move, but I don't know if it would affect the application or not.

    Hmm, do you have to declare any such visa application? If not I'd say keep it quiet, might just complicate things unneccessarily.
    If you DO have to declare it, the grounds that INZ are taking so long has forced you to secure financial stability by working elsewhere, should be enough surely...?

    Just my tuppence, sorry to crash your post MB :-)

    Grateful for any help you can give Steve. Just because a post appears to be addressed to me doesn't exclude others with more useful or additional info to post as well. The more the merrier, I say . Keep up the good work.
