Ms Tian made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Ms Tian

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

Good afternoon, this request is on behalf of my friend, she applied China working holiday visa on 29th, Aug. then sent the required documents to workingholiday@ mbie.govt.nz on 31th, Aug. It said "the application is like to be allocated to an immigration officer within 60 days". It has been two weeks so far, waiting too long. She wonder when will her case(or other whv's cases) be processed?
As far as she know, nobody get further notice on whv after sent documents. Last year, one of her friends, it just took seven days. it takes so long this year. She know INZ is busy with all kinds of visa application, but she still wanna know whether she need to wait another two weeks or more than that, if so, she will do some arrangement accordingly.
Looking forward to hear from you.


Yours faithfully,
Ms Tian
