Is it possible for INZ to decide on student visa application within 5 days?

Give them a call, they may decide on it over the phone. After all its an e-visa.

On a serious note, they have timelines on their website. You'll see how long is estimated time for your country.

5 days are u kidding for student visa. Once u submit and your documents are completed they will immediately tell u where to send your passport. Student visa takes 20-25 days.
U may be lucky from 14th day after applying

Hello, can somebody assist regarding newzealand student visa procedure? I already secured an unconditional offer of place at UC Christchurch for PhD Civil Engineering. I have paid the first year Tuition fee only personally ,for there is no funding(scholarship) presently. Do I need to pay Tuition fees for the remaining 3 years considering a 4 year PhD plan? This is for Visa application . Please advise me

bro,this your question na wa oooo grin grin

I believe there is no part of the world that doesn't have its own share of natural disaster,so I cant authoritatively say an area is less prone to one.
However,in terms of earthquake,visit GEONET,the official source for geological hazard information for New Zealand for real time information on earthquakes and other disasters. Earthquakes occur almost all the time-some you feel them,some you dont notice.It all depends on the magnitude.The link I cited will give you a rough idea. I have personally experienced aftershocks in chch lasting few seconds to minutes-but not anything major.

I just did a screen shot of an earthquake as at the time of typing now.

I think all areas are okay.The 7-8 universities in the country are located in major areas

I applied on the 13th May in the UK cos am residing here. I sent my passport to visa office on Monday 14th May which was received on the 15th of May. INZ sent me a mail to send them my employment and education history which I did immediately on the same 14th May and my account was debited for the handling and courier fees.

On Friday 18th May, I got a mail from DHL that my passport has been handed over to them by NZ Visa application centre. Expected delivery date of my passport is 21st May. So, what does this mean cos I am confused myself. Do they just need to verify my passport and return or what?

Yeah. They just need to confirm your identity and send the passport back to you.
Re: General New Zealand Student Enquires by jelmusboy(m): 7:00pm On May 19, 2018
Alright, thanks. Will they need to request for my passport again if the visa is approved or will get it as email?

They will only ask for your passport again if you got denied visa at first and you had to reapply, like it happened to my friend.
Sending your passport there is just for verification.
Did they ask for your passport again?

Yes, the requested I scan all the pages of my passport and upload to the application portal. Then afterwards, I should send the passport back to the VAC for "procedural scanning". I don't know if anyone has experienced this.

They seem not to know that sending this to and fro with DHL is over 50k.

Hi BaniB,

I also applied to UC and got an offer...PhD Civil engineering (I was really expecting the UC doctoral scholarship but i was not given).... I was at christchurch last year for a semester at Lincoln Uni so I visited UC where I met with other PhD students from Nigeria (self-funded). I asked similar question from them....
Paying the tuition for the first year is enough + the 15k living expenses. visa is renewed yearly for self-funded students. Immigration only grant four year visa for scholarship holders. I think you could apply with the first year tuition (NZD 8130 or so) except you have the whole tuition for the whole program. It is also possible to get a funding in the second year..


Goodluck..

Well might meet later

It depends on the school. Pls do enquire from the school. I know University of Auckland requests IELTS from Nigerians if your last educational qualification was obtained over 2 years ago. Massey waived it.

Hello guys,

I applied for my student visa and INZ has been doing so many checks and verification, they in fact called me on phone to ask some questions.

Yesterday, they requested that I sent my passport to them again for further checks and screening. Is this normal?

I passed through same. I wasn't particularly happy with the new method of sending passport twice, so I queried it. After their explanations, I was still reluctant but they insisted. They only issued the visa after I had sent the passport back. However I made it clear to them that as their VAC is not in Nigeria, the risks and costs of sending passports to South Africa twice should be given consideration.
Re: General New Zealand Student Enquires by jelmusboy(m): 8:38am On Jul 06, 2018
Can they still refuse one visa after sending this passport the second time?

Goodday house, today make it 2 weeks now that i submit my student visa application online then i have attached all the necessary document, hope i will soon get a reply from them but i discovered that by 3 weeks, they would have processed the application upto 75% from the mail i got from them after they acknowledge the receipt of my application.

But by that 3 weeks, will they contact me for any update?

Thanks.

Hi Lawprince and Delvindy, your discussion has been very insightful. @ Lawprince, Please how did your visa application work out? Was the scholarship letter enough to see you through or did you later submit additional docs for the flight ticket?
Delvindy:


Wow! This is helpful.
But I have submitted my visa application already.
For onward travel, I just attached the scholarship letter.
Even though I am working, my parents will be sponsoring my flight ticket.
I am about opening a dom account today though, maybe I'll move cash there and keep incase they require stronger evidence. I hope it is not too late.
I am so anxious about this visa thing, I pray the process will be smooth.

Thanks for asking. It was eventually approved, and I've been in NZ since April. The scholarship letter was sufficient for the financial requirement, but I later uploaded a bank statement as proof of onward travel (not upon request). It is also advisable that you provide evidence of family/economic ties with Nigeria. Good luck!

@jelmusboy futureenergy, Please I will like to know how long it took for your evisa to be issued after you submitted your passport for the second time?

I submitted my passport to my nearest INZ VAC and my passport was returned immediately after it was scanned within few minutes and was asked to pay the processing fee. Please what's the average time for this passport scanning?

Give them 1 to 2 weeks after the second passport submission. However, I wouldn't know if every candidate has same timeline.
