Dear Mohammad Faghihi,

 

On 23 September 2020, you asked the Ministry of Business Innovation and
Employment (MBIE) for information under the Official Information Act 1982
(the Act). Your request was made via the FYI website.

 

Section 12 of the Act provides that any person may make a request where
they are:

 

• a New Zealand citizen; or

• a permanent resident of New Zealand; or

• a person who is in New Zealand; or

• a body corporate which is incorporated in New Zealand; or

• a body corporate which is incorporated outside New Zealand but which has
a place of business in New Zealand.

 

MBIE requires more information to establish your compliance with section
12. An original of any one of the following items is acceptable as a
demonstration of your eligibility:

 

• A recent bill from the company who supplies your power, gas, water,
phone or internet services

• Council rates notice

• A letter from the Electoral Office

• Travel itinerary

• Anything from a government agency that includes your name and address

• Unexpired Rental or Tenancy Agreement.

 

A scanned copy of one of the above can be sent to
[1][email address]

 

Once MBIE receives this additional information from you, and is satisfied
that the requirements of section 12 have been met, we will acknowledge the
request and begin to consider it under the Act. If you do not meet the
eligibility criteria of section 12, MBIE will still consider your request.
Please respond by 25 September 2020. If do not respond by 25 September
2020 your request will deemed to be withdrawn.

 

The 20 working days for making a decision on your request will begin from
the day MBIE receives confirmation of your eligibility or otherwise.

 

Kind regards,

Margaret Huang

Dear Mohammad Faghihi,

 

On 25 September 2020, we sought information that would establish your
entitlement to make requests for official information. To date, we have
not received a response.

 

As you have not provided any evidence to demonstrate that you meet any of
the criteria in section 12 of the OIA, we do not consider that you are
legally entitled to make this request and accordingly we are not obliged
to respond.

 

However, as at 07 October 2020, there were 5996 Skilled Migrant Category
applications in the non-priority queue that were accepted between 1 May
2019 and 31 December 2019.

 

Please be advised that your OIA request is now closed.

 

Kind regards,

Margaret Huang
