    Hi,

    Your best bet is to phone the branch of Immigration NZ you sent your application to and ask them. There may be processing delays within the branch or something in your application holding it up. They will be able to give you a quick and easy answer

    Hi,

    thanks for the reply. I had applied in India, my home country but they said its with NZ immigration.
    And when i call NZIS, they say contact the immigration office where u applied...

    So the office you submitted your application to are saying they've sent it to Immigration in New Zealand?

    That's odd! I would contact the office in India and ask them which branch in New Zealand they sent the application to and if possible, the name of the case officer working on your application. Then you can contact the correct branch/case officer directly as the main call centre won't be of much use as your application was lodged overseas.

    Good luck anyway, it must be very frustrating for you both.

    That is odd. Usually an applicant's paperwork is dealt with at their nearest INZ branch and not somewhere half way across the world. That would mean your application would be dealt with by New Delhi branch. If you look down the links on the lefthand side, at the bottom of the list is Processing Timeframes. This should give you some idea of how long an application would take although I don't know what we're supposed to make of this.....

    Non-priority family residence applications New Zealand carefully plans allocation of permanent residence places.

    Still can't understand why your application has been sent to NZ for processing without an explanation though.
