Dear INZ OIAs,

To be precise, the situations is like I submitted my application 80 days ago. Now I've been granted an interim visa, which will expire if I travel overseas. I need to travel to Australia to present my work at a conference in early December and my Australian visa had been granted by early September. The only bottleneck now is the NZ student visa.
In the worst-case scenario (e.g. the 95% percentile processing time is exorbitantly long), I still need to tell the organiser that I cannot make it and they need to fill in a hole (the least wanted thing in a conference) left by my oral presentation which will not be happening.

Yours sincerely,
Gaoyang Li
