New Zealand VISA Processing
The visa applications are accepted if they are submitted at the earliest 3 months before a person plans to visit New Zealand and not less than that.
The visa applications would be decided within 15 days or 30 days in some cases such as student and research permit applications. People who apply within New Zealand will have to wait for an additional 2 weeks time since the visas would be issued in the city of Sydney, Australia.
As soon as your visa application is received by the New Zealand Immigration Authorities it will take 48 hours to process the visa. In some cases, the New Zealand Immigration Authorities might ask for further authentication of other personal information before granting a visa to you and so the processing time might be delayed.
You will be notified in such cases by the authorities wherein you will need to submit further details as soon as possible to get your application through.
