Hi all,
I am from Egypt and I am lecturer in University, Faculty of Medicine and I have a job offer as an academic visitor for only six months from March to September 2015. I submitted my work visa application (specific purpose or event) at 10 December 2014 and lodged at 17-12-2014.
They sent me email telling me it was forwarded to IPB at Wellington. It was surprise to me that they sent another email one week ago telling me the processing will take 3-6 months and I am still waiting for CO allocation. How come visa for only six months will take processing 6 months.
I just want to know if there anyone like me and is there any advice could you give me to accelerate this process. I will never can visit NZ at March like my job offer. Please any help and thank you.
