    Default recommended for approval stage

    Good day! We received an email from our Visa Officer last week and he informed us that our PR application is already on the " recommended for approval stage" . Does it mean that it is already in the bag? any members who received same message status from their VO? how long would it take for visa approval in principle? OH already in NZ on a work permit . we submitted our ITA 1st week Sept . Thank you very much

    We received a similar email at one point. My understanding at the time was that meant all that was left was final review / sign-off by the VO's supervisor -- which should be just a formality if the VO has done their job.

    IIRC, it still took another 3 to 4 weeks or so after that email before we got formal approval by post and were finally able to send in our passports to get the visas. We got our passports back pretty quickly after that, though -- just a few days plus time for the courier to the UK and back to the US (why passports go to the UK instead of NZ for visas, I have no clue).

    Thank you Ace. I guess we just have to wait for 3 weeks more or less. Patience is a virtue!

    Hi congratulations!

    We got the same letter a few days after submitting our ITA and unfortunately they came back with a few extra's we had to prove but from what I understand is that you are over the hard part :)

    Woo hoo...
