Dear Ranjit,

 

I will be responding to your official information request.

Could you please clarify question 3 of your request.

 

I am interpreting your request as, Skilled Migrant Category residence
applications which were received by Immigration New Zealand, placed into
the priority queue, then subsequently approved after being issued an EVE
approval to have their application allocated to an officer after August
2020.

 

Please confirm if this is correct by 12 October 2020. If this is not
correct please clarify your question further.

Kind regards

Adam Jones

Dear Adam Jones,
Sorry for confusion with question 3.

I want to know how many priority SMC and RFW applications were lodged and allocated after 1st Aug 2020. I also want to know that how many EVE requests were approved and applications were allocated.

Can you please add 1 more question to my request. Its just a simple question regarding SMC and RFW filing.

I want to know how many on shore applications were received across SMC and RFW queue between 01/05/2019 to 24/05/2019 those are waiting allocation to an Immigration Officer.

Yours sincerely,

Ranjit
