Dear Government Services,

Mr Ritchie, Thank you for your reply.

As per advice from MBIE and MNZ in Seafarers being Granted Emergency Category 2c Visas for repatriation, The question still remains.
How many seafarers "successfully" navigated and obtained repatriation into NZ under Emergency Category 2c Visas as per email from Director and CE Kristie Hewlet email 6th August 2021 ( Your attachment). ?
It is extremely disappointing after Maritime NZ signed, Circular Letter No.4204/Add.35/Rev.8 regarding NZ Seafarers as Key Workers and "cherry picked" the actual requirements as outlined.
