Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

As a citizen of New Zealand, I would like to make my first OIA request. I will use bullet points to make it easy to log the request in the Hive.

I request
-file format : csv table
-from: INZ group
-periodicity: monthly aggregated
-period(d/m/y) : 01.01.2015 to 16.12.2020
-subject: granted onshore work, resident, tourist visa applications by country of origin
-aggregation: sum of distinct count by month
-type of visa: work, resident and tourist. Please give them a high level label even if there are many more types of visas underneath. Regardless if it is from partnership or family.

As an example the data should look like this:
Date | Visa Type | Sum of Distinct Count

1/01/2015 German_work_visa 14
1/01/2015 German_resident_visa 4
