The second question is how many of these parents, who are already here , have submitted EOI for Parent Resident visa. Please , if it is not much trouble, provide the number of EOIs and the number of people included in.

Hi Ana,

 

Thank you for your email below received on 10 August requesting
information under the Official Information Act. We are seeking
clarification from you on the following:

 

Part 1:

“A number of parents are in New Zealand under the conditions of several
types of temporary visas. My first question will be to ask you to provide
the exact number.”

 

Please clarify, narrow or re-scope this part of your request. You have
requested the number of ‘parents’ in NZ on different types of visas which
we would not be able to provide as we would not be able to clearly
identify which applications are for clients who are defined as ‘parents’
unless you were to narrow this down to a certain visa application type i.e
Visitor Guardian which is a visa type specifically for parents. To ensure
you get the information you are looking for please clarify this part of
your request.

 

Part 2:

How many of these parents, who are already here , have submitted EOI for
Parent Resident visa. Please , if it is not much trouble, provide the
number of EOIs and the number of people included in.

 

For part 2 of your request we can provide you the number of EOIs for
Parent Resident Visas that have been submitted as at 10 August 2020.
Please confirm our interpretation of part 2 of your request.

 

Please provide us with a response by 24 August 2020.

 

Kind Regards,

Lautalie Leausa Vaa

Dear Lautalie Leausa Vaa,
I am very sorry if I put you in much trouble. Please , ignore my first question. It would be very nice if you provide the information you suggested as an answer to my second question. So, how many EOI's for Parent Resident Visa have been submited as at 10th August 2020. But now I would kindly ask :how many of that number of EOI's are the EOI's for Parent Resident Visa submitted from New Zealand.
Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Ana
