New Zealand is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It receives a high number of visa applications, especially during the summer months. During this time there is a surge in visitor visa applications. International students too, apply for their Student Visas for the upcoming academic year.
New Zealand has recently closed a few of its processing branches. New offices are still learning to deal with different profiles and identifying risky ones. This has led to a temporary backlog situation.
Also, New Zealand will stop visa processing for 2 weeks over the holiday period, as per Mondaq.
Whom will this backlog impact?
The delay in processing times due to the backlog will impact people who have recently submitted a visa application. It will also impact those who wish to submit a visa application in the coming months.
The delay will also impact employers in NZ who wish to file for Work Visas for employees to commence work in early 2019.
