Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

Please can I request the number of non-priority queue skilled migrant residency visa applications made by onshore applicants between the 1 April 2019 and 1 January 2020?

If possible, please could I have this information broken down by the number in each month in this period?

Yours faithfully,

Al Hall
