Questions regarding Parent Resident Visa Pool

A KS made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

The request was partially successful.

From: A KS

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

Thanks for opening the Parent Resident Visa Category.

Could you reply for the following 6 questions ?

1:- Can you provide the total Count of EOIs currently in the Parents' residency visa Queued pool. If you can provide the count of persons, that will be great too, as 1 EOI can have more than one applicant.

2:- Please share the document mentioned in the link below, dated 20 October 2021, regarding long-term visitor visas for Parents.

https://fyi.org.nz/request/17478/respons...

3:- Please share any other documents related to the discussion or consideration of the introduction of the longer-term parent visitor visa or any modifications to the existing 3 years parent and grandparent visitor visa.

4:- The MBIE public document library has released documents related to the SMC review, but the library has no document regarding the recently done review of the Parents Resident Visa.
https://www.mbie.govt.nz/document-library/

Could you please release documents for Parent Visa review as you did for SMC. You can provide documents as a response to this OIA too.

5:- In the old EOI, you had provided a breakdown of the Submitted EOI count and Count of EOI in the queue split by the year month format
https://fyi.org.nz/request/11911-questio...
https://fyi.org.nz/request/11911/respons...

However, at that time there were no withdrawals

Can you provide similar information again in EXCEL format?

Format of the data extract required ( 8 Columns a -h below)

a:- YEAR
b:- MONTH
c:- COUNT of EOIs Submitted in that Year Month
d:- COUNT of Persons belonging to the EOI Submitted (c) in that Year Month
e:- COUNT of EOIs from that Year Month which are in Queued Pool now
f:- COUNT of Persons in EOIs (e) from that Year Month which are in in Queued Pool now
g:- COUNT of EOIs from that Year Month which have been withdrawn
h:- COUNT of Persons in EOIs (g) from that Year Month which have been withdrawn.

You can add the old Tier 1 and Tier 2 together for counts.

6:- Can you provide the total count of EOIs submitted before 15 September 2018 and still in the Queued pool? If you can give the count of persons, that will be great too.

Yours faithfully,

A KS
