Total number of applications held in Non-Priority Queue

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

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

From: Paul McCarthy

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

I am writing to request the number of applications that are currently held in the non-priority queue by Immigration New Zealand under the SMC?

Also from this how many applications are held that the date of lodgement falls on or before the 12th February 2019.

Again from this number of non-priority cases lodged on or before the 12th February 2019, how many of these applications are noted as onshore applications?

What is the oldest date of lodged application within the non-priority queue?

How many Case officers do Immigration New Zealand have working on the SMC applications overall? Are any of this team of Case officers devoted to the Non-Priority Queue?

I can confirm that I both work and live in NZ currently.

Yours faithfully,
Paul McCarthy
