Current Skilled Migrant Category internal prioritisation and oldest application in the backlog

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

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Junlong to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Junlong

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

I am writing to mainly request for the information below:

1. Could you please provide the current version of the internally set prioritisation criteria for Skilled Migrant Category application? And if there is any link we can follow for the update of this criteria?

2. In this FYI resource (https://fyi.org.nz/request/11454/respons...), I saw the point 3 in the response of Question 1-2, it's mentioned that Offer from Accredited Employer is listed as a priority to be processed.

I wonder who and how I should inform when my employer becomes the Accredited Employer so my application could be prioritised? And after that, how long will it take before my application is allocated to a Case Officer?

3. May I request the oldest SMC application in the backlog as at the time this request is being reviewed?

4. Is there any government meeting notes mentioning that the current internal prioritisation criteria will be taken away, or any changes will be applied to these criteria?

Yours faithfully,

Junlong Wang

Dear Ileini Taloa,

Thanks for your reply.

You're right that I was referring the date of the oldest application in the SMC backlog at current date. But if you can provide more details about that, that's very helpful too!

Yours sincerely,

Junlong
