Expected vs Actual Timeframe for National Security Check

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

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

From: Abraham

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

I would like information on what the expected verse actual timeframe is for National Security Checks to be completed by a third party agency for the 2021 Residency Visa? I understand this may vary, but surely MBIE has an agreement with third parties on what the expected timeframe is for completion.

I would also like to know how many applicants requiring a National Security Check applied for this visa category?
Of those applying for a One Off 2021 Residency Visa and meeting the criteria of a National Security Check, how many have been completed so far to date?

Yours faithfully,
Abraham

“12/11/22 Request

I would like information on what the expected verse actual timeframe is
for National Security Checks to be completed by a third party agency for
the 2021 Residency Visa? I understand this may vary, but surely MBIE has

13/11/22 Request

I would like information on what the expected verse actual timeframe is
for National Security Checks (NSC) to be completed by a third party agency
for the 2021 Residency Visa? I understand this may vary, but surely MBIE

If this cannot be answered - what is the average waiting period for an
applicant who requires a NSC for the 2021 Residency Visa?

 

I would also like to know how many 2021 Residency Visas Immigration New
Zealand received which require the applicant to have a  NSC completed? How
many NSC have been completed so far from the 2021 Residency Visa
category?”
