New Zealand Parent and Grandparent Visitor Visa Updates
A brief update on the visitor visa applications for parents and grandparents from August 1 to September 21
For customers whose applications for parent and grandparent visitor visas were submitted between 1 August and 21 September but have not moved through the Immigration Online platform as planned, we are executing a one-time change.
These applications did not advance due to requests for medical information. For certain customers, an interim measure has now been implemented in order to process their applications as swiftly as feasible.
With comparable travel restrictions to the Parent and Grandparent Visitor Visa, these applications will now be handled as General Visitor Visas. This is a one-time adjustment that will help us process these applications more quickly. If successful, applicants will soon be able to visit New Zealand after receiving a visa approval.

Customers who are impacted by this are now being notified, and when they go into Immigration Online, their application status can read "lapsed." They don't have to take any action. This is a modification that will help this visa applications move forward.
Applications submitted after September 22 are unaffected.
The good news is that this will only happen once, making it possible for the relevant agencies to process the applications more quickly. You can schedule a free consultation with us if you are one of the impacted consumers to learn more. Your application's "lapsed" status is expected, but you don't need to take any additional action.

After that, I researched the best immigration consultant on google. I visited lots of websites but was not satisfied with their answers.
