Offshore visa

divakar made this Official Information request to Kris Faafoi

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for divakar to read recent responses and update the status.

From: divakar

Dear Kris Faafoi,

I was onshore when I applied my SMC visa and just because I am offshore now doesnt not mean I am an offshore applicant and my application should be on hold. I do have my job until date and request you to consider my application as onshore as I was in Nz when I submitted this

Yours faithfully,
Divakar

Kia ora,

On behalf of Hon Kris Faafoi, thank you for your email. 

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important, and all
messages are carefully read and considered, it is not always possible to
personally reply to all emails.  As such, the following guidelines apply:

·        Invitations and meeting requests will be processed as soon as
possible and a staff member will be in contact with you in due course

·        All media queries will be responded to by a staff member

·        Requests for official information will be managed in accordance
with the provisions of the Official Information Act 1982, which may
include transfer to a more relevant Minister or agency

·        If your email falls outside of the Minister’s portfolio
responsibilities, expresses a personal view, or is copied to multiple
Members of Parliament, then your opinion will be noted and your
correspondence may be transferred to another office, or there may be no
further response to you

Thank you for the taking the time to write.

Nga mihi,

Office of Hon Kris Faafoi

Minister of Justice, Minister of Immigration, Minister for Broadcasting
and Media
